Help defeat lung cancer, the number one killer of women in the United States, one step at a time by participating in the American Lung Association in Nevada’s LUNG FORCE Walk on December 1, 2018. American Lung Association statistics show lung cancer in women is on the rise. In fact, every five minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with lung cancer.
The American Lung Association’s 2018 LUNG FORCE “State of Lung Cancer” report shows that the five-year survival rate for lung cancer is less than one in five, making it the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. This is because most lung cancer cases are diagnosed at a later state when the disease is less curable.
LUNG FORCE Walks are a signature fundraising event for the American Lung Association. Through inspiring music and a fun, supportive vibe, the nonprofit rallies friends, neighbors and colleagues to raise voices against lung cancer—and for lung health for everyone.
Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women. Anyone can get it – if you have lungs, you can get lung cancer, and it’s on the rise in women. Because every 5 minutes, a woman in the United States is told that she has lung cancer. More than 33 million Americans suffer from asthma, COPD (which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and other lung diseases.
By joining our LUNG FORCE Walk and raising funds, you can help make a difference for all those affected by lung disease.. Now is the time to raise our voices against lung cancer—and for lung health. Together, we are a FORCE to be reckoned with!
