Lung disease, including asthma, emphysema, and lung cancer, is the third leading cause of death in the United States.
Did you know that:
The death rate from lung disease has grown faster than the death rate from almost any other killer?
Over the last decade, the prevalence of asthma among children has increased 72 percent?
Each day, 56 Rhode Island children start smoking?
The American Lung Association of Rhode Island is working to change these stark statistics through education, research, and advocacy. We help those who suffer from lung disease today, and hope to stop the spread of lung disease tomorrow.
To succeed, we need your help. By making an on-line donation or supporting a special event, you will join a growing group of people dedicated to fighting lung disease and promoting lung health in Rhode Island.
