Why These Women Are Fighting

American Lung Association Special Promotion

Women business leaders in Hawaii are fighting to educate people about the need for more awareness and funding for the #1 cancer killer of women: lung cancer.

These women have united through Lung Force, a new national movement led by the American Lung Association to unite women against lung cancer, a disease that kills almost twice as many women as breast cancer.

Lung Force has three priorities:

  • Make lung cancer a cause that people care about – and act on
  • Educate and empower patients and healthcare providers
  • Raise critical funds for lung cancer research

As businesswomen, these individuals understand the importance of giving back to the community through Lung Force and a host of other non-profit organizations. Here are their stories:
