Women’s Lung Health Week

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Each year during the second week of May, the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative celebrates National Women’s Lung Health Week and Turquoise Takeover – bringing the country together in a national conversation to raise awareness of lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women and men in the U.S.

The campaign’s color, a bright and hopeful turquoise, symbolizes our work to take lung cancer out of the shadows and help raise awareness to give the attention—and research funding—needed to defeat the disease. From landmarks to city skyscrapers to Facebook & Twitter profiles—together, we turn turquoise!

Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Monday, July 16th, 2018

Join the IASLC in helping to raise awareness about lung cancer during November’s Lung Cancer Awareness Month.

The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) is leading a joint effort among a consortium of a non-profit lung cancer patient advocacy organizations and individuals. This effort is designed to produce a coordinated, harmonized public awareness campaign for Lung Cancer Awareness Month (LCAM) in November 2018. A critical part of this campaign is to share and widely promote the stories of lung cancer survivors, caregivers and families of those who have been diagnosed with lung cancer. These stories will be displayed on the campaign’s brand new website www.lcam.org. They will also be shared on Twitter and Facebook feeds that have been set up specifically for the campaign. IASLC’s hope is that this effort will be maintained and expanded upon in subsequent years.
