LUNG FORCE is a national initiative started by the American Lung Association to promote women's lung health and to raise awareness about the #1 cancer killer in both men and women, lung cancer. Although lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in both men and women, the rate of women that are being diagnosed has risen 118% while the rate of men has decreased by 21%. When we asked women what cancer was top of mind for them only 1% said lung cancer. Because of these statistics and being the least funded cancer the American Lung Association started LUNG FORCE. Anyone can get lung cancer, regardless or not if you smoke. 30% Of people diagnosed with lung cancer are not smokers.
