Message from the President & CEO
We are currently living through extraordinarily challenging times. COVID-19 has certainly presented us with a lot of fear and uncertainty, and at the same time, has also managed to unify our province through an incredible showing of community spirit and togetherness.
COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that places those with lung health issues at a higher risk. Now, it is more important than ever, for us to continue providing valuable lung health services to all Nova Scotians, including the 1-in-5 who suffer from lung disease. Whether it be through supporting cutting-edge lung health research, answering inquiries related to lung health, providing support to lung transplant patients, and more - we are dedicated to continuing to find the best ways to maximize our impact, while doing our best to keep our province, and our community safe.
The impact of COVID-19 is evolving at a rapid pace. We will continue navigating through this situation, but have made the difficult decision to cancel all fundraising events for the spring and summer. This is being done to keep our lung community, our volunteers, and our staff safe - which is always our number one priority.
This will influence our ability to generate revenue this spring, and will result in a lack of funding for lung health research, programming and education resources. This is why we need your continued support, now, more than ever.
We realize this unprecedented situation is causing financial uncertainty with all Nova Scotians, and donating is likely not top-of-mind. Please consider any size donation, so that we can continue to provide the valuable service many Nova Scotians have come to count on. It’s simple to make a donation on our website HERE
Thank you once again, for your continued support during this difficult time.
Please take care of yourself and your loved ones. We’re all in this together.
President & CEO
Lung Association of Nova Scotia
