The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT salutes their efforts as roughly 600,000 Albertans are living with lung disease. One in every five Canadians have lung disease, yet we underestimate the burden of lung disease on the collective health and well-being of our nation. Three major chronic lung diseases — lung cancer, asthma, and COPD — cost Canada’s economy $12 billion in 2010, according to The Conference Board of Canada.
The need for change starts now, and with your help this summer and fall, you will help The Lung Association get one step closer to creating a world free of lung disease.
