Simon’s mother has lung cancer. It could just as easily be your friend, mother, brother or neighbour. Let’s start giving lung cancer a fair go.

Having lung cancer is difficult enough but the stigma surrounding it has become one of the most challenging aspects of his mum’s diagnosis. He wants more Australians to understand that smoking is just one cause of lung cancer – and that it can happen to anyone.

It can happen to anyone. It’s not something that’s specifically caused by x, y and z. These things happen.

Lung Foundation Australia needs your support to change the landscape of lung cancer by funding for research and better treatment options, and campaigning against the stigma that acts as a barrier to action.
