Grammy Award-winning singer Patti LaBelle is passionate about lending her powerful voice to the LUNG FORCE initiative. Patti lost two of her sisters to lung cancer in their early 40s and is dedicated to encouraging more women to make their lung health a priority.
"It's very important to me to share my voice in memory of my sisters. Their story is all too common – in the U.S., one woman will die from lung cancer every 8 minutes. Unfortunately, most lung cancer cases are diagnosed late, when treatment options are limited, but there is hope and progress happening. I'm proud to be a part of the fast-growing LUNG FORCE initiative and passionate about encouraging others to join and take action so we can defeat lung cancer."
