The American Lung Association helps to save lives by improving lung health and helping to prevent lung disease. Founded over 115 years ago by a group of volunteers dedicated to ending the lung health threat of our time: tuberculosis, but with TB largely controlled in the US now, they have extended that mission to other respiratory diseases. And thanks to their donors, volunteers, program, event participants and staff...they are America’s trusted source for lung health education, lung disease research, support, programs, services and advocacy. Also learn more about what they are doing to curb the teen vaping epidemic, how they help folks stop smoking, how they fight for cleaner air and so much more at lung.org
Powered by everyday heroes and volunteers. Your support fuels their mission. Participate in an event, volunteer, become an advocate, or donate. Make a difference today.
Check this out!! Our favorite Dodgers, Angels & Padres players are coming together for Champions Unite! A one-of-a-kind off-field talent show to support lung health for all, including overcoming COVID-19, tobacco control, youth anti-vaping and clean air – because when you can't breathe, nothing else matters.
