About us

Addario Lung Cancer Foundation

Through empowering and educating patients, funding cutting-edge research, building strategic collaborations and raising public awareness, our goal is to transform lung cancer into a chronically managed disease within 10 years and ultimately to find a cure.

Patients fighting Lung Cancer today and those who will be diagnosed tomorrow are at the heart of our mission. Driven by the knowledge that Lung Cancer is the number one cancer killer worldwide annually, our imperative is to dramatically increase patient survival rate.

"Empowered patients live longer. Our message is simple… we want to live."
– Bonnie J. Addario

The American Lung Association

The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research. For more than 110 years, we have led the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air, whether it's searching for cures to lung diseases, keeping kids off tobacco, or fighting for laws that protect the air we all breathe. We have made steady progress, yet we still have so much to do.

With LUNG FORCE, we are building on our 50 years of fighting lung cancer – from prevention and early detection methods to improved treatments and enhanced support of patients and caregivers. LUNG FORCE unites women and their loved ones across the country to stand together against lung cancer.
