     Title: ALA Launches LUNG FORCE to Fight the #1 Cancer Killer of Women
The American Lung Association launched a new initiative today to combat the number one cancer killer of women, lung cancer. LUNG FORCE is a new national movement to rally and unite women in the fight against lung cancer and for lung health. Every 8 minutes a woman dies from lung cancer, and on average less than half of women diagnosed with lung cancer will be alive a year later. Join LUNG FORCE and take a stand against lung cancer.

The American Lung Association is a pioneer of respiratory health and a great partner for BHHSC. We applaud their efforts to raise awareness about lung cancer in women. Together we can support patients, doctors, and policy makers fighting to reduce the burden of lung cancer. Go to to learn more.
