The <a href="http://www.alany.org." target="_blank"style="color:#c08434;"><b>American Lung Association, New York</a></b> aims to prevent lung disease and promote lung health. <br><br> Everyone is touched by lung disease. Think of your friends and family. Was a relative recently diagnosed with asthma or kept out of work because of a severe bout with the flu? Do you know someone who struggles to breathe on a smoggy summer day? That’s lung disease. <br><br> Lung disease, including asthma, emphysema and lung cancer, is the third leading cause of death in the United States—responsible for one in seven deaths. <br><br> The Association provides support and expertise in all areas of pulmonary health, from air quality and influenza to tobacco-related illness and tuberculosis (TB). We support the people who are living with lung disease and their caregivers who provide treatment for their loved ones. <br><br> We help people with lung disease lead healthier lives; champion issues that protect the health of the community; and enable important research for understanding—and someday curing—lung disease. <br><br> For more info, please visit <a href="http://www.alany.org" target="_blank"style="color:#c08434;"><b>www.alany.org</a></b>
