    Since 1915 theAmerican LungAssociation hasworked toprovide research, education,advocacy and funding for those affected by lung diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention more people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. Today, one in seven Americans die of lung disease every year and an average of 7,000 Illinoisans lose their battle to lung cancer each year.Thirty-fourmillionAmericans are

    livingwith a chronic lung disease,said, KristenYoung, ExecutiveDirectorof theAmerican LungAssociationinGreater Chicago. That could beanything fromasthma to lung cancertoCOPD.Young said the American Lung

    Association has funded research on lung disease since 1915 and, with the statistics on lung disease as high as they are, research is more important than ever before.TheAmerican LungAssociation

    has focused their research effortson lung cancer in recent years.Theorganization funded $3millionworthof research in 2015. Young said theAmerican LungAssociation is onpace to fund over $5 million worth ofresearch in 2016.Lung cancer is themost commonly

    diagnosed cancer in theworld, with asmany as 1.8million cases diagnosed

    worldwide in 2012. It is the leadingcancer killer in bothAmericanmenandwomen and is expected toaccount for 27 percent of all cancerdeaths in 2015.The lung association saves lives

    by improving lung health, preventinglung disease and specifically throughresearch, education, and advocacy allright here in Illinois, said Young.

Courses includingAsthmaBasics, BreatheWell, LiveWell, OpenAirways for Schools, BetterBreathers Club and Freedom fromSmoking are offered either in personor online.More information onhowthese courses are delivered can befound atwww.lung.org.Young said the organization

    is partneringwith other healthorganizations to build awarenessabout the benefits of smoke-freehousing and adopt smoke-freehousing policies.Specifically in theChicagoland

    area, theres a lot to be done.Thebenefits of going smoke-free asa buildingmeaning residentsare not allowed to smoke on thepremises or even in their apartment far outweigh giving those rights topeople, said Young.TheAmerican LungAssociations

    advocacy efforts are reflected in newcity and state laws.Most recently, thecity of Chicago changed the legal ageto buy tobacco products from 18 to 21.This is a stepping stone and

    were hoping other cities and stateswill follow the lead andmake this apriority, said Young.TheAmerican LungAssociation

    was also instrumental in gettingthe Smoke-Free Campus Act signedinto law in 2015 in Illinois.The lawprohibits smoking on the groundsandbuildings of any state-supportedcollege or university,making theseinstitutions tobacco free.

    Now that the lawhas beenpassed,were really looking to educate thosearound the universities to understandthe benefits of it andhow to adopt itfor their specific college, said Young.TheAmerican LungAssociation

    inGreater Chicago hosts fourmajorfundraising events each year.TheyholdA LUNG FORCE run/walk everySeptember inOakBrook (www.LUNGFORCE.org.Walk).The eventdraws about 1,000walkers anditsmain focus is about spreadingawareness about the prevalence oflung cancer inwomen.Its really a platform for us to
