Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. Every 2½ minutes, someone is told that he or she has the disease.
To help defeat lung cancer and support research innovation focused on early detection and better treatment, Team Mayo Clinic is collaborating with the American Lung Association to host Lung Force initiatives during National Women's Lung Health Week, May 6–12. The initiatives unite women and their loved ones to stand together against lung cancer and for lung health.
Lung Alliance is also asking advocates to wear turquoise on Capitol Hill ins Washington DC June 10-12,2018 where lung cancer survivors are walking the halls fo congress to raise awareness and support for Women and Lung Cancer Research.
