Better Breathers Support Groups

Join us!  Our volunteer-led Better Breathers Support Groups are designed for patients with chronic lung diseases including COPD, bronchiestasis, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis. Anyone with a lung condition is welcome, as are family and friends. 

Remember, if you can't find a support group in your community, check out and consider joining our private online support group.  Or, call us if you would like support to get a group going in your neighbourhood!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person meetings are suspended until further notice. To join our monthly virtual meetings, contact betterbreathers@bc.lung.ca to get on our e-mail notification list.
