JHave you or a loved one been personally impacted by lung cancer? LUNG FORCE Heroes are survivors, caregivers or family members who have faced this devastating diagnosis, and want to join the LUNG FORCE movement to empower others while advocating for a cure.

Our Heroes in South Florida also have opportunities to share their stories through social media, email campaigns, and at events, like our LUNG FORCE Sunset Soiree. Every year a select group of Heroes are selected to walk in the Light the Way Luminary Procession at the LUNG FORCE Sunset Soiree. The 2024 Soiree will take place on June 1. Consider signing up as a LUNG FORCE Hero today. If you are interested in participating in the Luminary Procession at the Sunset Soiree, contact
