The Quebec Lung Association’s mission is to improve education, promote respiratory health and prevent lung diseases. The association also offers services to people with Alzheimer’s disease, accompanies their loved ones and supports research. Nearly 900,000 Quebecers have one of the four most common respiratory diseases; asthma, lung cancer, COPD (emphysema and chronic bronchitis) and sleep apnea. Chronic respiratory diseases, such as asthma and COPD, are the fourth leading causes of death in Quebec, and these are the reasons for which the organization offers services on more than 77 respiratory health issues.
