We encourage our supporters to help us shine a light on the inequities that exist for lung cancer patients and their families.
This year the Lung Foundation is focusing on the inequities in research funding allocated to lung cancer – latest figures confirm less than 5% of research funding is allocated to lung cancer research – yet lung cancer is Australia’s biggest cancer killer!
Every dollar raised from this campaign will be invested in local lung cancer research.
Get involved and help Lung Foundation Australia and Lung Cancer Network Australia to continue to support and empower lung cancer patients, their families and carers.
Lung Foundation Australia
Every day, on average, we take more than 22,000 breaths. For some people, just one breath is a challenge!
For the last 25 years, we’ve supported all aspects of lung disease - from COPD to lung cancer to rarer lung diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis.
Your generous donations ensure we can continue to:
• promote lung health
• educate and support patients their families and carers
• train and inform health professionals
• fund world class research
• take the lead in lung disease advocacy
• drive community awareness
Whether you’re a patient, family member, carer or health professional, we’re here for you.
Lung Foundation Australia receives no ongoing government funding and it is a challenging task to raise the funds needed to support all of what we do. We therefore rely on your support and you can help us......
Why not fundraise by taking part in an existing event (see below) or create your own fundraising challenge. Fundraising can be a lot of fun and a great way to get the community together for a purpose.
We all know someone afflicted with lung disease, let's help raise funds so we can support them as well as invest in research so that others don't suffer in the future.
Thank you for your kind support.
