LUNG FORCE Action Passport

Visit each of our passport tents to learn more about our mission and earn yourself a stamp. All participants who complete their LUNG FORCE Action Passport by collecting all five stamps will be eligible to win a prize!


LUNG FORCE Heroes are patients, caregivers, family, friends and co-workers of those who are impacted by lung cancer or lung disease. These brave individuals share their powerful real-life stories online and at events to help raise awareness and educate the public about what it’s like to live with lung cancer or lung disease. If you're interested in becoming a LUNG FORCE Hero, please contact Kate Veiga.
