An afternoon of networking, inspiration for amazing female leaders in our community, shopping, and raising awareness for lung cancer and lung disease by attending the Power of Breath Women’s Fashion Luncheon 2019 at the Country Club of the South. This event is focused on Women Leadership and Empowerment. Our Breath is powerful, vital and important. We are working together to raise awareness for the mission to end lung cancer and lung disease.
- Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women and has one of the lowest five-year survival rates of all cancer types, at 17.7%. The rate of new lung cancer cases in women has increased 94% over the last 39 years.
- 30% of women diagnosed with lung cancer never smoked.
- More than half of the 33 million Americans living with chronic lung disease are women.
- Not only are women disproportionately affected by lung disease, but they also influence more than 80 percent of the healthcare decisions for their families. By educating women, we will expand our impact and increase the likelihood that women will not only make healthy decisions for themselves, but also for their families—including the men, women and children that they love.
Our Leading Ladies
The Power of Breath Women’s Fashion Luncheon Leading Ladies are an elite group of women who have been nominated by their peers and have accepted the challenge to collectively raise a minimum of $15,000.00 for lung health. Be inspired by these amazing women working to create impact through funding the mission of the American Lung Association and who are working to influence change in lung cancer and lung disease.
