The lungs are essential organs for life, and many people are not aware that lung diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide.
Not only do lung diseases kill, but they also cause considerable suffering, and the incidence of these diseases is predicted to rise even further between now and 2020.
The ELF is working for all people with lung disease to:
raise awareness in the general public and at a national and EU level
provide information for patients and their families and friends
raise funds for research to help further the treatment of lung diseases
All donations, big or small, made to the ELF will help to achieve its goals, and to help Europe breathe easier.
Thank you for helping us to raise awareness and fight lung disease.
