Love & Light Lung Cancer Support Group

Funded in Cycle 7

We are the first lung cancer support group to bring awareness and support to the community.Only 40% of those diagnosed with lung cancer were smokers and there is a real stigma attached to this.We have had over 300 calico bags made which includes literature to help the newly diagnosed.4 to 6 people are diagnosed each month and we have given these to the Oncologist to pass onto patients.We need a lot more to keep up with the demand.We meet once a month to offer support so please help us going.

The total project cost is… $1 000.00

The major costs associated with the project are…
Item 1 $1000 for 100 bags

The $1,000 grant will be used to… purchase and print logos on bag

If we get $1000 this will keep us going for a while.

Great for the Doctors to give newly diagnosed patients to help and guide them through their journey.

What a fabulous support group that needs as much support and awareness that can be generated. $1000 would be a massive help!

Vital to spread awareness re non smoking lung cancer so that greater research can be conducted into causes and treatment

this is a wonderful cause. sadly it receives a very low amount of funding despite being the number 1 cancer killer. With an increasing number of non-smokers getting this illness, greater awareness and funding is absolutely critical.

Anyone touched by cancer knows how terrifying the experience can be. These information packs will provide newly diagnosed patients with hope, security & comfort as they start their journey with a better understanding of what's to come. Well done guys!!
