About Lung Cancer Awareness

Hi everyone, my Grandmother and uncle both passed away from Lung Cancer and in 2015 I was diagnosed with an adenocarcinoma in the (R) Upper lobe of my lung. I had been diagnosed with Asthma but my intuition kept telling me something was wrong. I had to demand a chest X-ray which showed my tumour. I had a (r) upper lobectomy and remain cancer free 3 years on. I will be forever grateful to my surgeon,Nursing staff , family and friends who Helped me through this very challenging time in my life. Lung cancer kills more Australians every year than any other cancer and yet the Lung Foundation only receives less than 5% of research funding. There is great stigma surrounding Lung cancer due to its association with smoking. There is less empathy, compassion and understanding and many believe “we” deserve it. Lung Cancer does not discriminate and neither should we. Such judgement can be the one factor that stops someone seeking medical help and can have devistating outcomes with severe depression and people giving up and feeling very alone. We need to change the attitudes towards lung cancer and improve the survival outcome. Early detection is so important. Let’s help break that stigma! I want to bring Awareness and help improve outcomes for all Australians who are diagnosed with Lung Cancer. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Lung Foundation Australia bring awareness to Lung Cancer and break down the stigma with it. Early detection is so important. Many blessings, Ginnie

Lung Foundation Australia

Anyone can get lung disease. It affects 1 in 4 Australians and is the second leading cause of death.

Lung Foundation Australia is the only charity in Australia providing support and a voice for people with lung disease, their families, carers, health professionals and the general community. 

We fund life-changing research and facilitate early detection by supporting best practice clinical management and delivering lung health programs. We work to empower those with lung disease to take the important steps they can to enjoy a better quality of life by understanding and managing their disease. 

Lung Foundation Australia works across all areas of lung disease, with a particular focus on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), lung cancer and rare lung diseases including Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), bronchiectasis and rare lung disease in children.  

We offer a range of support and services to help people to manage their lung condition and improve their lung health and wellbeing. Your generous donations ensure we can continue to: 

- Drive community awareness about lung health

- Fund word class research

- Advocate for people with a lung condition

- Provide information and support for patients

- Facilitate best-practice training and education for health professionals.

Lung Foundation Australia relies on funding from individuals, families, businesses and industry organisations and are deeply appreciated of this generosity. To increase our support for research, patients and advocacy, it is critical we continue to build our capacity to raise further funds in the community. 

Fundraise by creating your own fundraising challenge. Fundraising can be a lot of fun and a great way to get the community together for a purpose. 


Thank you for your kind support.
