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. With the generous support of the public, we are "Fighting for Air".
Our mission to prevent lung disease and promote lung health is the driving force behind all American Lung Association events and programs. Our special events are a celebration of our successes in the fight against lung disease and the promotion of lung health. And, our education programs and services are designed to reach everyone affected by lung disease. The Upstate currently host numerous Better Breathers Clubs (lung disease support groups), Freedom from Smoking Clinics, and asthma programs.
Today, our fight is more important than ever. We are funding research that continues to unlock the secrets to lung diseases, from asthma to lung cancer. Our local Lung Associations across the country are critical partners in health, working at the community, state, and regional level to fight for healthy lungs and healthy air right where you live.
And the fight continues. After more than 100 years, the American Lung Association is still "Fighting for Air."
