Don’t forget to support the American Lung Association in California’s Los Angeles LUNG FORCE Walk. 100% of proceeds will go directly to LUNG FORCE. LUNG FORCE, led by the American Lung Association, will unite women to stand together against lung cancer and for lung health. LUNG FORCE is a movement focused on Lung Cancer but aims to unite all of us around the importance of Lung Health. Nationally, partnering with CVS Caremark, the focus on women and the lung cancer space was intentional. Not only is Lung Cancer on the rise 116% in women, but by focusing on women, the primary health decision makers in the family, LUNG FORCE has the unique chance to alter the health decisions in families all across the country.
Please consider these startling Lung Cancer facts:
Lung Cancer is the #1 cancer killer in the United States.
· Every five minutes, a woman in the U.S. is told she has lung cancer.
· The lung cancer death rate in women has more than doubled over the past 35 years.
