JTV Cares - Charity Support, Philanthropy, Community Outreach
JTV is proud to support a new women's health initiative, Respiratory Health Association®, based in Chicago, Illinois. A public health leader since 1906, Respiratory Health Association® is devoted to its mission of preventing lung disease (asthma, COPD, lung cancer), promoting clean air and helping people live better lives through education, research and policy change.
Women’s respiratory health issues are one of the leading causes of death among women and lung cancer kills more women than all other cancers. Nearly 21 million women in the U.S. live with some form of chronic lung disease, and millions more will be diagnosed.
Throughout the month of February, JTV will be advancing knowledge about respiratory health and raising funds for women’s lung health research and programs through Respiratory Health Association’s Catch Your Breath® campaign. The Catch Your Breath® campaign raises funding for research and programs to better understand lung disease and improve treatments. In addition, it increases awareness by educating the public and medical professionals about the disproportionate effects of lung disease on women.
JTV also hosts charity events throughout the year that benefit other local and national non-profit organizations. See below for details about upcoming events and how you can get involved.
