Why I am supporting Lung Foundation Australia

My Story

This November, LCB Aromatics is taking part in the Shine a light on lung cancer campaign. Did you know that lung cancer has taken the lives of approximately 9,198 this being made up of approximately 5,229 males and approximately 3,969 females. Unfortunately, my grandmother is one of those beautiful people who grew their wings and took the flight to the pearly white plains above. This loss has been one of the hardest in my life and has prompted me to do something to help find a cure, or at least raise awareness of this terrible disease. Help us fight to find a cure, and fight this ugly disease. Marina (my grandmother) was one of the most kind-hearted giving person I have ever have the priveledge to meet. She was loving, caring, giving and most of all she was the person who held our family together. Marinas passing has struck our family and devastated us all, I have struggled all year with her passing and letting her Rest In Peace. I still struggle every single day. BUT every little act of kindness I can do to help possibly prevent this terrible disease from gripping another family gives me some happiness and hope, that her departure from this world was not in vain. I know donations of funds can sometimes be a huge ask for alot of people as we all have bills and families to pay and support. If you have purchased a product from our website, donated just in kindness or even read this page have helped me fulfill my goal in this fundraiser. It's not about money, or selling product, its all about raising awareness for this evil heathen of a disease. Help us STOP this disease dead in its tracks. I thank you all for supporting every single man, woman, child, mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, uncle, aunty and family to find a cure for this devastating disease. You can help too, by donating to this page. Any amount you can give makes a difference and allows my grandmother Marina’s legacy live on. 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 myself and my family. Together we can help Lung Foundation Australia in reasearching and creating a cure for Australian number one killing 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.
