Why I am supporting Lung Foundation Australia

My Story

In honour of my late mother Johanna Bronkhorst I have started a fundraising page to assist the National Respiratory Nurse Support Service raise much needed funds for Lung Foundation Australia. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. 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 create the world we want to see.

About National Respiratory Nurse Support Service

Help Lung Foundation Australia establish a free National Respiratory Nurse Telephone Support Service 
Too many people with a lung disease are feeling isolated, anxious and unsupported. Those living outside the main cities are particularly in need of extra support.
Lung Foundation Australia is asking for your help so that we can provide a new Respiratory Nurse Telephone Support Service via our free call number.
This new service will provide access to a highly qualified Respiratory Nurse for patients, relatives, carers and health professionals – just a phone call away. Callers can discuss any problems or queries they have on lung health related matters including personal care and management, and referral to local support services where necessary.
 
Brisbane patient, Meredith Lores, who was diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in February 2015, knows firsthand the benefits of having access to and the support of an experienced nurse.   “With the support of my nurse, I now have the tools to manage my COPD and this has made a massive difference to my breathing and quality of life,” Meredith said.
This personal care is invaluable to people like Meredith, whose symptoms are changing the way she lives her life. 
Please help Lung Foundation Australia establish this much needed telephone support service so people can access the support of an experienced and qualified Respiratory Nurse over the phone – no matter where they live and what lung condition they have.

You can make a donation online or set up your own fundraising page - it is simple.  If you need assistance or would like to ask any questions please contact Amy Rymer on (07) 3251 3651  or amyr@lungfoundation.com

About my cause: 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.
