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.

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.

This stigma surrounding lung disease 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.

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.
