It’s Time for Turquoise Takeover: May 8 - 14, 2023
LUNG FORCE’s annual Turquoise Takeover and Lung Cancer Action Week is here! We’re looking forward to uniting to raise critical awareness of lung cancer, the nation’s leading cause of cancer deaths.

Each year, we turn the nation our signature color – turquoise – and tell the stories of individuals impacted by lung cancer to provide hope to everyone affected by the disease and save more lives.
