Why your gift matters

Your gift can help someone breathe easier...

Kyrell Gayle, 6, is The Lung Association's Christmas Seals ambassador for 2015.

If you’ve never struggled for breath, it can be hard to understand how terrifying that can be. But for those who live with lung disease, breathing is an everyday struggle. Your support can help them catch their breath.

Life-threatening lung diseases are on the rise and more than 600,000 Albertans are coping with lung illnesses. As Alberta’s population ages, that number will continue to grow. The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT works to help the newly-diagnosed and those living with chronic conditions receive the information and care they need to battle their illness. The Lung Association supports the work of health professionals and educators who assist patients directly, and researchers who are exploring new treatments that hold the promise of a cure. It’s a collaborative effort — one that relies on the generosity of people like you.

If you breathe, lung health matters to you. Your donation will help those living with lung disease breathe easier and face the future with strength and hope.
