Give to christmas cards campaign
The season of gift giving is rapidly approaching, and with it the fresh and invigorating breath of winter. In times such as these, ripe with celebration, family reunions and the expression of best wishes for health and well-being, the Quebec Lung Association urges you to give to those who are less inclined to celebrate because of a respiratory illness.
In Quebec alone, 1.7 million people are estimated to suffer from a pulmonary condition such as lung cancer, COPD, asthma or sleep apnea. In a large number of cases, due to a loss of respiratory capacity, these illnesses are seriously debilitating for those who are affected. Potentially deadly, they also claim the life of one person every 8 minutes.
Contrary to what one might think, lung diseases are often the result of environmental and hereditary factors, and are therefore not all caused by personal choices like smoking.
The Quebec Lung Association is well aware of the need to relentlessly pursue research into the cause and treatment of respiratory illnesses, while continuing to encourage prevention among the general public.
Your gift, however humble, will help the Quebec Lung Association to pursue its mission designed to support research, education and information among people with respiratory illnesses, their loved ones and members of the general public.
This year, we invite you to give hope and the promise of a better future by supporting the Quebec Lung Association. Such is the most wonderful gift one can make.
And speaking of gifts, you will receive our new collection of Holiday cards, to make your Holiday blessings even brighter. We hope they will be useful in sowing joy throughout this festive season.
