When we evolved into the Lung Health Foundation, we did so to more effectively and efficiently deliver on our mission and invest the funds entrusted to us by donors and partners.
The sole reason the foundation exists is to help Canadians improve their lung health. Our bold new Lung Health Starts Now! 2021-2026 Strategic Plan will help us do it.
It’s focused on taking on lung cancer, asthma and COPD.
We’re also hard at work on health promotion through preventing youth smoking and vaping and protecting Canadians from infectious respiratory diseases – something we’ve all seen the importance of with COVID-19.
Unchanged and unwavering is our dedication to deliver life-changing and life-saving solutions that educate and empower Canadians to breathe better. We will work tirelessly to give patients and their families the programs and support they so urgently need, invest in research and advocate on their behalf.
With a more clear and defined focus, our impact will stretch to all communities in all provinces and territories, with every effort working together to drive change for those affected by, and at risk of developing, lung disease – putting patients first and listening to donor priorities.
We know the healthcare system is not nearly nimble enough to address the massive and growing gaps in prevention, diagnosis and treatment for the one-in-five Canadians literally gasping for breath. We are and we can thanks to our generous donors, valued partners and dedicated volunteers. Together, we are creating a world where everyone can breathe easier.
We are deeply grateful for your support and thank you for being a part of this mission.
