Support Groups for Individuals with Lung Disease


American Lung Association Better Breathers Clubs
are regularly scheduled, in-person support groups for
individuals with chronic lung disease including COPD,
pulmonary fibrosis and lung cancer.
Learn ways to better cope with your diagnosis while
getting the support of others in similar situations.
These support groups give you the tools you need
to live your best quality of life.
Led by an American Lung Association trained
facilitator, Better Breathers Clubs 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
It feels good to talk with others who understand
what you are feeling, and can offer support and
encouragement along the way.
