Fundraising for the Ontairo Lung Association
“What motivates me to fundraise for the Lung Association are the friends and family I have that are affected by asthma and two of my older friends that suffer from COPD. I love the Amazing Pace because of the awareness it creates and helps for those people suffering plus the race is the most fun someone can have while fundraising for such an important cause!”
What EVERY ONTARIAN SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LUNG DISEASE
More than 2.4 million people in Ontario – one in five – are currently living with a serious lung disease such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or lung cancer.
By 2041, that number is expected to jump by 50 per cent to 3.6 million.
Within a generation, more than 2.5 million Ontarians alone will be living with asthma, with nearly half a million of them being children under the age of 15
Over the next 30 years, some 310,000 people in Ontario will be told they have lung cancer. Eighty per cent of them will die from the disease. Lung cancer claims the lives of more women than breast, ovarian, cervical, uterine, vaginal and vulvar cancers combined
The current cost of lung disease in Ontario is $4 billion. That figure is projected to skyrocket to more than $300 billion by 2041.
