LUNG FORCE Advocacy Day 2017

On April 5, the American Lung Association and LUNG FORCE Heroes — lung cancer survivors and their loved ones — came together from all 50 states at the U.S. Capitol to encourage their Senators and Representatives to support research funding during the second annual LUNG FORCE Advocacy Day.

These lung cancer advocates asked Congress for increased funding for research at the National Institutes of Health that will result in better treatments and methods of early detection of lung cancer.

Lung cancer touches so many families. Investing in research at the National Institutes of Health will lead to better early detection, improved treatments, longer survival and new hope for those facing lung cancer.

Send a letter to your Senators and Representative to tell them you also support increased research funding at the National Institutes of Health.
