Has someone you know been touched by lung cancer? Nominate your loved one as a LUNG FORCE Hero to bring greater awareness to lung cancer and raise critical funds for lung cancer research, advocacy and education.
LUNG FORCE Heroes are individuals, friends and loved ones who have been impacted by lung cancer. These brave individuals have powerful real-life stories worth sharing to educate the public about what it’s like to live with lung cancer. Everyone's story is unique, so sharing these stories is important to raising awareness of lung cancer.
Register below for yourself or to honor a LUNG FORCE Hero today. You will create a unique fundraising page, where you can share your story or that of a loved one to inspire others to join the fight against lung cancer and support lung health. Check out Lori's story and Stacy's story and the impact they have had on raising awareness of lung cancer.
Then join us for the 6th annual Charlotte Turquoise Tasting at the Duke Mansion on Thursday, October 14th. We will celebrate all those who participate in our LUNG FORCE Hero campaign and share promising news in lung cancer advancements. It is a special evening honoring those who boldly fight to defeat lung cancer.
Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths among women and men. Someone is diagnosed with lung cancer every two minutes and 14 seconds. 4 in 5 of those diagnosed will ultimately die of the disease.
Why We're Hopeful
More Americans than ever are surviving lung cancer. The survival rate has increased by a dramatic 13% to 22.6% in the last 5 years. Your support will help us continue the progress in our efforts to defeat lung cancer.
