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