About #understand

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

Recent research has revealed one third of Australians believe people with lung disease have only themselves to blame, while one in ten will say they got what they deserved.
When people say lung disease isn’t worthy of help, sadly, it makes those affected believe it too. The stigma surrounding lung disease is a major barrier to accessing research, funding, treatment and support. It also has significant mental health impacts and causes delays in diagnosis.

You can help change this.

Help break down the stigma and show people with lung disease that they matter too by making a donation today.  

All money raised will fund the development and delivery of critical support services for people living with a lung disease including lung cancer, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Bronchiectasis, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) and Childhood Interstitial Lung Disease (chILD). 

Judgement is never a cure. But understanding is a step towards one. 

About 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.
