What We Do
We’re Fighting for Air.
As one of the oldest and most respected charitable organizations in the country, the American Lung Association is best known for the help it provides to those suffering from lung disease and to those trying to quit smoking. However, that is only a small part of our story. We fund livesaving research to find better treatments and cures for lung diseases. We galvanize our advocates and petition our lawmakers to adopt and maintain clean air standards. We help promote cleaner fuels for vehicles. And we raise awareness of radon, a quiet and deadly indoor air quality issue.
Our vision is a world free of lung disease and until we achieve it, we will continue to Fight for Air.
