Online forum highlights practical day-to-day advice on living with a lung disease

Breathing Space, Lung Foundation Australia’s new online support forum, launched earlier this year is a great place to start if you are looking for peer support from others who live with lung disease. The forum is also open to carers, friends and families of those who live with lung disease.

Some of the current topics discussed in the forum include practical advice such as daily comfort, oxygen use, food and nutrition, as well as emotional support. Carers have also been discussing their unique situations in looking after a loved one and offering support and tips to each other.
