Breathe easy is a support network for people who have a lung condition and for those who look after them. These people often feel alone and making friends is important.
Breathe Easy groups provide a good opportunity for this to happen. The groups meet in many different towns, and indeed in Essex we now have 9 groups. They usually meet once a month and offer free information leaflets on the various diseases involved with lungs. They usually have a speaker on many different subjects and arrange social activities, outings and fund raising events. They are always there for your questions or queries – If they do not know the answer then they know a person who does.
One person in seven in the UK is affected by a lung disease. Whether it’s mild asthma or lung
cancer, the British Lung Foundation is there for every one of them.
