Shine A Light Events

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.

In November 2017, Lung Foundation Australia will release of our latest research which reveals the true extent of the stigma surrounding lung disease and the devastating impact it is having on those affected, particularly those with lung cancer. Australians from all walks of life are not only living with lung disease, but feel isolated and discriminated against.

As part of Lung Health Awareness Month in November, Lung Foundation Australia is working to break down the stigma and increase awareness and support for those with this neglected disease.

Shine a light on lung cancer
Lung Cancer Awareness Month, November 2017

Host or attend a Shine a Light on Lung Cancer event 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.

Shine a Light events can be as small or as big as you like. They may be a morning tea with your family, a walk with friends, a BBQ or sausage sizzle, or a cake stall at your school.
