Our mission is to improve the lives of lung transplant patients and their families.

Ongoing support


Transplant center-specific support is designed to offer support and education to lung transplant recipients, candidates, and their families by providing a forum for sharing information and experiences. A support group helps you and those close to you better understand and cope with issues and concerns associated with lung transplant.

Long-term support is more often provided by internet support groups via listservs, message boards, and Facebook groups. Common post-transplant topics include lifestyle changes caused by transplant, financial concerns associated with transplant, side effects of medications, fear of organ rejection, and prevention of infection. People often also share their triumphs and milestones, such as being present at births, graduations, and other important life events, playing sports, participating in the Transplant Games, hiking, swimming, raising children, traveling, and working.
