Telephone Support Groups

Lung Foundation Australia’s Telephone Support Groups are a great way for people living with lung cancer to connect with other people in a similar situation to them without leaving the comfort of their home. These free and confidential groups are facilitated by qualified Lung Foundation Australia staff including our Lung Cancer Support Nurse, Claire Mulvihill. The calls are open to lung cancer patients at any stage of their illness. Whilst our staff facilitate the call, they are there to provide support when and if needed – members are encouraged to discuss all topics related to their lung cancer journey freely.
