Give the gift of breath

Please consider donating today to support medical research and offer hope to everyone affected by lung diseases.

John’s Story

This year’s appeal features the much-loved John Price. John wanted us to share his story again as his battle with the disease has got worse. He now struggles to breathe every day and he needs oxygen therapy support.  

“Normal lungs are like new sponges but sadly mine are like worn out sponges that hold no water. This means I constantly battle to breathe every minute of the day.”

Like John, for the 7.4 million Australians living with a lung disease, it can be a struggle to breathe.

What you can do

Thanks to a very generous friend, you can make DOUBLE the impact this year as donations made will be DOUBLED, whilst funds remain. That means your tax-deductible donation of $30 will turn into $60, $50 will turn into $100 and $100 will turn into $200 taking us one step closer to finding a cure for IPF and other lung diseases.
