Lung Foundation Australia will host two very special events in Sydney for lung cancer patients, their families and carers just prior to the opening of the 15th World Lung Cancer Conference at Sydney Convention Centre on the weekend of 26- 27 October 2013. 


We hope that many of you will be able to attend at least one of these events. These two events have been especially designed with you in mind and we hope you will find them informative, hopeful and inspirational.   

Both events will give you the opportunity to meet people from around the world who live with lung cancer.

The Lung Foundation will host an informal  Shine a light on LUNG CANCER  awareness  vigil on  Saturday night in the Palm Grove area  of Sydney’s Darling Harbour.  We are happy to announce that the Darling Harbour Fireworks at 900pm will be dedicated to the more than 1 million people worldwide whose lives have been touched by lung cancer.  Join visiting international patient advocacy groups who are in Sydney for the 15th WLCC and help us raise awareness about lung cancer – the biggest cancer killer worldwide.  After the fireworks, we will hold a moments’ silence to commemorate those touched by lung cancer and salute survivors.
