Healthy Lung Month

If you or a loved one are living with a chronic lung disease, you don’t have to feel alone or isolated. It feels good to talk with others who understand—and that can have a positive impact on your health!

Better Breathers Clubs are welcoming support groups for individuals with COPD, pulmonary fibrosis and lung cancer, and their caregivers. Learn better ways to better cope with lung disease while getting the support of others in similar situations. Led by a trained facilitator, these in-person adult support groups give you the tools you need to live the best quality of life you can.

Better Breathers Clubs meet regularly and feature educational presentations on a wide range of relevant topics, including:

  • How COPD affects the lungs
  • Breathing techniques
  • Exercise
  • Talking with your physician
  • Medications and other treatment options
  • Medical tests
  • Supplemental oxygen
  • Home healthcare
  • Lung transplants
  • Air pollution

You can join others at a monthly Lung Health Support Group American Lung Association in Florida, Central Area, 851 Outer Road Orlando, FL 32814.

Telephone (407) 425-5864, ext. 1300

Email: Rebecca.Desir@lungse.org

Meets: The second Tuesday of each month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
