- Lung Cancer kills more women than breast cancer and ovarian cancer combined
- Lung disease is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States
- 35 million Americans are living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Approximately 14 million adults in the U.S. have asthma
These are just a few of the facts that help illustrate the need for education and awareness as well as for finding a cure for the various types of lung disease. It's way more than just trying to tell people to stop or to not start smoking. Lung disease effects a lot more than just smokers.
