Lung Health Support Groups in Ontario
Have you or someone you know been diagnosed with a lung disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (chronic bronchitis and emphysema), pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis, pulmonary hypertension, lung cancer, or asthma?
Have you ever wanted to share your own experiences, accomplishments and frustrations in dealing with this disease? A support group can offer you a place to share your thoughts with others, as well as support and empathy only people affected by lung disease can understand.
