Hank Lizotte – In Memoriam

Lung Foundation Australia has lost one of its great supporters with the passing Hank Lizotte on Friday, 14th March.

Hank was a determined person with a strong commitment to family and community values and the healing power of music.

Hank and his wife, Theresa, were a great team whose inspiration and determination created the Breath of Life Music Festival and the Lizotte Family Research Award.

Their legacy continues to contribute to the National IPF (idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) Registry which has been established to foster collaborative research into IPF in Australia and internationally.

Their achievements promote awareness and research into pulmonary fibrosis, and towards hopefully finding cures for this devastating lung disease which has affected their family and many others.

Our deepest sympathies and condolences go to Hank’s family, friends and the thousands of people whose lives his legacy continues to touch.
