Honor a LUNG FORCE Hero Today!

Sponsored by Mecklenburg Radiology Associates

Has someone you know been touched by lung cancer? Nominate yourself or a 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 yourself or a loved one as 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. Once your personal page is created, share it through social media to encourage people to donate to help defeat lung cancer. 

Then join us for the 7th annual Charlotte Turquoise Tasting at the Duke Mansion on Thursday, October 13th. 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.

Tickets for the event are $150 each. Click here to purchase event tickets. Individuals who raise $500 or more through this campaign by October 12th will receive two (2) complimentary tickets to the event. Those who raise $1,000 or more by November 15th could be featured on our outdoor billboard advertising campaign! Have questions? Contact Jennifer Hall

We are grateful for the financial support of Mecklenburg Radiology Associates.

      Why We Need You

      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.
