The American Lung Association is the leading organization dedicated to saving lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research. The Lung Association provides support and education for those living with asthma, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and fighting external threats to lung health such as tobacco, air pollution, and more.
For nearly 100 years, the mission of the American Lung Association of Maine has been to prevent lung disease and promote lung health through research, legislation, and education. Our work impacts every Maine community and we are proud to say that nearly 90% of our funds stay in Maine. The remainder is used to support national education, research and public policy programs. We are not a state agency and we do not rely on state funds. The American Lung Association of Maine is supported by private donations and volunteers--people just like you. Together, we can help to improve lung health for everyone in Maine.
