  • History:
  • The American Lung Association was founded in 1904 to fight tuberculosis, which was a disease that was plaguing the time. This year marks the organization’s 110th year serving the United States making it the oldest voluntary health organization in America. In 1907, Emily Bissell sold Christmas seals that established the first fundraising campaign. This annual campaign became so prominent that the American Lung Association became known as the “Christmas Seal People.”

    Since their inception, the American Lung Association has broadened their mission to include tobacco and all lung disease. The mission of the organization is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research. There have been many victories in research like:
    • In 1959, discovering the lack of a fatty substance in babies with respiratory distress syndrome
    • In 1989, a grantee helped discover the cystic fibrosis gene
    • In 2001, research found the flu shot was safe for children living with asthma

    A landmark victory for the organization was the Clean Air Act. Other smaller advocacy victories were the banning of smoking on airplanes and the FDA having the rights over the sale of the tobacco products
