Creating a world in which no one struggles to breathe
We all need to breathe. It is essential to human existence and of vital importance to each and every one of us. But we rarely think about the 22,000 daily breaths we take – until we have trouble taking them.
The Lung Association is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping all Canadians breathe through our community of donors, patients, researchers, volunteers and professional staff.
We help Canadians breathe by:
PROMOTING HEALTHY BREATHING - We promote healthy breathing by fighting for policies that protect our air and educate Canadians about what they can do to promote their own lung health.
SUPPORTING THOSE WITH LUNG DISEASE - We support and advocate for those living with conditions that affect the lungs and the ability to breathe, and fight to challenge the stigma and ignorance that can be associated with lung disease.
FINDING FUTURE SOLUTIONS - Through education and research, we work to turn knowledge into action and find cures to diseases that will deliver a future of better breathing for all.
