Lung Cancer Network Australia is the Lung Foundation’s national patient/carer initiative. We rely on funds raised through peer-to-peer fundraising, individual and corporate donations, events and bequests. We receive no ongoing government funding for our core activities.
Funds raised for Lung Cancer Network Australia go directly to lung cancer patient/carer support initiatives and resources. We also deliver patient education sessions and awareness events aimed at improving the quality of life of lung cancer patients and raising the profile of lung cancer in our community.
Lung Cancer Network Australia focuses on:
- providing reliable information and support to those affected by lung cancer
- raising much needed funds for research
- advocating to our Government for lung cancer patients, families and carers
This year we are focusing on the inequities in research funding allocated to lung cancer. The latest figures confirm less than 5 per cent of research funding is allocated to lung cancer research – yet lung cancer is Australia’s biggest cancer killer!
Recent advances in lung cancer screening, early detection and treatments are providing hope for patients and their families that have never existed before in the field of lung cancer. More research is needed to fight this disease and find a cure.
Get involved and help Lung Cancer Network Australia to continue to support and empower lung cancer patients, their families and carers.
