Grammy award-winning artist Jewel and women's lung cancer advocate graces the cover of the print publication. Through an exclusive interview on the interior, Jewel reveals her thoughts on how lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of women in the U.S. "I was very surprised that lung cancer was the No. 1 killer for women, I had no idea, which made me realize a lot of families must also be unaware." Since then, she has advocated for better research and legislation for lung cancer along with creating a song called "Sing On," in support of Lung Force a national movement lead by the American Lung Association.

This campaign was made possible with the support of the American Lung Association, LUNGevity, American Lung Association, Lung Cancer Alliance, Allergy and Asthma Network, The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, Genentech's Lung Cancer Project, American College of Radiology, RadoNova, AAARST, Sanofi, Allergy and Asthma Network, Sun Nuclear, Jewel, American Association for Respiratory Care.
