LUNG FORCE Walk - Philadelphia

Lung Champions

Every two minutes in the U.S., someone receives the life-changing news of a lung cancer diagnosis. This devastating disease claims the lives of more than 356 individuals daily, impacting our friends, neighbors, and loved ones. Despite these staggering statistics, there is now a ray of hope shining through the darkness.

More Americans than ever are defying the odds and surviving lung cancer. While it remains the leading cause of cancer-related deaths, the national survival rate has seen a remarkable 22% increase over the past five years, now standing at 26.6%. Even more encouraging is the accelerated progress within communities of color, bridging the gap between survival rates among different racial groups.

This progress is a result of continuous advancements in research. The American Lung Association's efforts through LUNG FORCE have contributed over $30 million towards lung cancer research since 2014, driving innovation and breakthroughs in treatment and care.

I invite you to be part of this life-saving mission by joining Team Lung Champions or making a donation. Your support can make a real difference in the fight against lung cancer and bring us closer to a future where this disease no longer claims the lives of our loved ones.

Together, let's stand united against lung cancer and support those who need it most. Join us in making a positive impact and spreading hope in our communities.

Thank you!
