Why I am supporting Lung Foundation Australia

My Story

I am taking part in Shine a Light on lung cancer to 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. My Father passed away from Lung Cancer in 2016. In 2016, lung cancer was the leading cause of cancer death in Australia. It is estimated that it will remain the most common cause of death from cancer in 2018. Not many people know this statistic. Lung Cancer is often stigmatised, but if you have lungs, you can get Lung Cancer. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! In order to further demonstrate my desire to raise funds, I will make some sacrifices myself. I will be giving up chocolate and lollies for all of October, this will lead into November which is Lung Cancer Awareness month. Those with Lung Cancer sacrifice so much. 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 colleagues. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Lung Foundation Australia create a world with earlier detection and better treatment, more awareness and improved prognosis of this ghastly disease.

About Shine a Light on lung cancer

Anyone can get lung cancer. One Australian dies every hour from lung cancer, making it the leading cause of cancer death in Australia; more than breast, prostate and ovarian cancers combined.
Recent research has revealed one third of Australians believe people with lung cancer have only themselves to blame, while one in ten will say they got what they deserved.
This stigma surrounding lung cancer has a devastating impact on the level of funding, research and support available to people living with lung cancer. Lung Foundation Australia is working to break down the stigma and increase awareness and support for those with this neglected disease.
You can help make a difference.
Help Shine a Light on Lung Cancer in support of lung cancer research. These local community events bring together patients, their family and friends, health professionals, clinicians, and researchers as one resilient voice in support of more research funding and earlier diagnosis of lung cancer.
All funds raised through Shine a Light on Lung Cancer events will be invested into lung cancer research.
Get involved and help Lung Foundation Australia to continue to support and empower lung cancer patients, their families and carers.

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.
