Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer among men and women.
The American Lung Association says cases are increasing in women here in Tennessee, regardless of whether they’ve smoked or not.
That’s why they’re raising funds for research to find new treatments for lung cancer.
The Lung Force Walk is May 18. The walk steps off at 10 a.m. from Public Square Park at Union Street & 3rd Ave North. It’s a 2-mile walk.
News 2’s Jared Plushnick will emcee.
Abby Williams and Gail Frost from the American Lung Association stopped by News 2 at 11 a.m.
Gail reveals why this year’s Lung Force Walk is more personal than ever for her.
