Support & Services
WE'RE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU. We know it can be hard to live with a lung disease or care for someone who's sick. We also know that with the right information and support, people can improve their lung health and feel better. We'd like to help.
Lung Transplant Support Program
For people with certain lung diseases a lung transplant may be a last option for survival. Patients come from all over western Canada to the University of Alberta hospital, accommodations and other basic living expenses are not covered by health care and can be a significant financial burden to those already burdened by coping with their lung disease. The Lung Association provides much needed support for those undergoing transplant.
With your help, The Lung Association strives to improve lives and health for Albertans and residents in the Northwest Territories who are suffering from lung disease by ensuring that necessary patient care programs are available to them.
The Lung Association supports numerous programs through contributions such as funding, information, guidance, and exposure. From prevention and diagnosis, through to treatment, disease management and even transplant, we work to help people understand the process, navigate the health care system and strive for better health.
