Lung Cancer

Our evidence-based resources will help you better understand your condition and the important steps you can take to improve your outcomes and wellbeing.

Lung Cancer Search and Rescue

Lung Foundation Australia understands that all Australians living with, and impacted by, lung cancer face unique circumstances that are different for everyone. Whether you have been newly diagnosed, have been living with lung cancer for some time, or you are a loved one of someone living with lung cancer, we know there are always questions you are seeking answers to.

That is why Lung Foundation Australia is launching Lung Cancer Search & Rescue; a new campaign that aims to ensure all Australians looking online for material on lung cancer find the best source of information possible – Australians living with lung cancer themselves who know more than a thing or two about what you are going through.
