Today we will salute and remember our LUNG FORCE Heroes! They include people living with or a survivor of lung cancer, COVID-19 or another lung disease, and those we have lost! LUNG FORCE Champions are caregivers, family members, friends or co-workers who know or have lost someone to lung cancer or another lung disease.
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 Walk Kickoff event, Corporate Recruitment event and/or on Walk day.

Dr. Weiser’s main clinical focus is the surgical treatment of diseases and conditions of the chest and chest wall, specializing in surgical management of the trachea (airway) and minimally invasive treatment of lung cancer. Dr. Weiser also specializes in surgical resection of esophageal cancer. In addition to his expertise in removing Thoracic cancers, he is facile with the state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures in staging lung and esophageal cancer.
At registration, you will be given a Spirit Pom to wave with pride as you walk. In this small, spirited way, we can recognize loved ones who are currently struggling with lung disease and our Champions.
