Our Hustle’s Not Over

“This was my 17th year climbing 94 flights, 1,632 steps, in honor of a beautiful girl who saved my life with her lungs. And when you reached the top…you were celebrating her lungs with me.”

– Steve Ferkau, Double Lung Transplant Recipient & Hustle Chicago Climber

At Respiratory Health Association, we believe in a future free of lung disease. A world without lung cancer, asthma, or cystic fibrosis. A world with clean air, where everyone breathes easier. That’s why we’re out hustling in local communities to teach kids skills to manage their health. Why we partner with researchers in a relentless pursuit of new treatments and cures. Why we work to pass laws that limit the influence of Big Tobacco.

Our fight continues long after your climb is done. There’s so much work to be done, and we can’t do it without you.

Your support today helps ensure a future with healthy lungs and clean air for all.
