Being an advocate for the national Lung Transplant Foundation is simple. The key is making people aware.
Talk to people. Make people aware of lung transplantation and the benefits and the challenges surrounding the procedure. Share your personal story or the story of a sister, a niece, a friend, or a colleague. People will listen and want to get involved.
Lobby your federal, state, and local representatives. Increase representatives’ awareness of lung transplantation by writing a letter about our need for research and funding. It’s easy.
