Cancer Treatment Centers of America


The American Lung Association and Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) partner nationally, as well as through regional charters, to support LUNG FORCE, an initiative to raise awareness about lung cancer as the number one killer of women. 

In 2015, CTCA® supported LUNG FORCE with a $100,000 matching gift and community education activities. In addition, CTCA hospitals and Stakeholders (employees) across the country contributed another $82,135 to local American Lung Association charters.

CTCA also ran a national radio and print advertising campaign that highlighted the story of Jane Elterman, a stage IV lung cancer survivor, LUNG FORCE Hero and CTCA patient. CTCA hospitals, corporate offices and Stakeholders partnered with local American Lung Association charters to show their support by hosting a variety of events – all aimed at increasing education and support.
