Each day, 34 Australians are diagnosed with lung cancer . It is the leading cause of cancer death in Australia – more than breast, prostate and ovarian combined – with a 5-year survival rate of just 17%.
As Australia’s leading lung health charity, Lung Foundation Australia funds life-changing research and programs to reduce the prevalence of lung disease and cancer, and improve support and care for all Australians.
Our mission is to ensure lung health is a priority for all - from promoting lung health and early diagnosis, to supporting people with lung disease. We champion equitable access to treatment and care, and support health professionals through education and resources.
We stand for compassion, respect and collaboration, and we are fuelled by courage and driven by hope for change.
