LUNG FORCE Heroes and Champions

Who are LUNG FORCE Heroes?
We salute and remember our LUNG FORCE Heroes. They include people living with or a survivor of lung cancer or another lung disease, and those we have lost.

Who are LUNG FORCE Champions?
LUNG FORCE Champions are caregivers, family members, friends or co-workers who know or have lost someone to lung cancer or another lung disease.

LUNG FORCE Walks are a great time to meet other people battling and impacted by lung disease, which is why participants who have a personal connection are encouraged to identify themselves at registration. If you are comfortable, you will be asked to join as a new LUNG FORCE Hero and will have the opportunity to share your story as a LUNG FORCE Hero or Champion.

Our Heroes and Champions can share their powerful voices. These real-life stories help raise awareness and educate the public about what it’s like to have lung cancer or lung disease. Heroes and Champions may be asked to share their story at a LUNG FORCE Walk Kickoff event, Corporate Recruitment event and/or on Walk Day.

If you're interested in sharing your voice, please contact us.
