American Lung Association of Missouri Fund

The American Lung Association of Missouri Fund will enable this 100-year-old voluntary health organization to continue its critical mission of preventing lung disease and promoting lung health. Originally founded to eliminate tuberculosis, the American Lung Association today fights lung disease in all its forms, with special emphasis on asthma, tobacco use and environmental health. Asthma is today's leading chronic illness among children and the number one reason for missed school days, emergency room visits and hospitalizations. Nearly 90 percent of today's smokers started before the age of 18 and one third of them started before the age of 13. And many areas of Missouri do not meet the air quality standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency. All of these issues make lung disease the third leading cause of death - 90 percent of which are preventable. This is why the American Lung Association's educational programs are part of the curriculum in many schools across Missouri and why lung health research is so important. Your contribution will not only bring vital programs to more children in your community, it will support research to find a cure. This fund is an irrevocable contribution.
