Thank you for joining the American Lung Association’s Better Breathers Network. You have joined a nationwide group of adults living with or caring for someone with chronic lung disease. Living with a lung disease can feel isolating but when you connect with others problems seem more manageable.
Here are a couple resources to get you started:
Our website contains information you need to learn about the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and management of your lung disease. You can also learn about our lifesaving research program, advocate for changes to improve lung health through our Take Action Network and follow our award-winning blog to learn more about lung disease.
- Virtual Better Breathers Club Support Groups
It feels good to talk with others about your experiences living with lung disease. Join a virtual Better Breathers Network support group or listen to recorded meetings. Past meeting topics include Goal Setting and Gratitude, Natural Disaster Preparation and Addressing Emotional Health and COVID-19 and much more!
- Educational Webinars
Beginning with Understanding the Respiratory System and Lung Disease, you can tune in to recently recorded webinars where our physicians who are medical spokespersons for the American Lung Association share the foundation of how lungs work so you can better understand your lung disease.
- Lung HelpLine
Our Lung HelpLine is open seven days a week and is staffed by experienced registered nurses, respiratory therapists and certified tobacco treatment specialists. We are here to provide you with the support you need and the answers you are looking for by calling 1-800-LUNGUSA or submit a question online.
- Online Support Communities
Connect with others, share experiences and learn from friends in a free, online forum for people facing lung disease. Join one of our many disease specific support groups or an all-encompassing Living with Lung Disease community today and you can read, start or respond to threads on topics you care about. We look forward to connecting with you soon.
