Online Disease Support Communities

The American Lung Association is proud to support several free online communities on for people facing lung disease. These free online communities offer peer-to-peer support so you can connect with people who are in your shoes. You can start or respond to threads on the communities, upload photos and search for specific topics to find other members who share the same interests.
