Nationwide, asthma, COPD and other lung diseases affect more than 33 million Americans, with lung cancer being the highest cause of death. Lung disease death rates continue to increase while other leading causes of death have declined. The American Lung Association combats these statistics by conducting lung health education, life-saving research, programs and services, advocacy, for all types of lung diseases.

TruWest Credit Union has partnered with the Lung Association in projects to help further community efforts in the fight against lung disease.
