Information and Support Centre

We understand being diagnosed with a lung condition can have an enormous impact on you and your family. We want you to know you are not alone and that we are here to support you to live well with your lung disease. Lung Foundation Australia provides services and resources for people with many types of lung diseases, including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and lung cancer.
