The New Brunswick Lung Associations' Lung Transplant Support Group: Atlantic Provinces has been created to provide a secure place for New Brunswickers, who are needing a lung transplant and/or have had a lung(s) transplant, to come together in private. Here you can ask questions, share experiences, get answers, inspire each other and encourage each other.
You can also find out answers about financial resources or how to create them, emotional and psychological support, how to be prepared in all ways for your journey and surgery, how to find accommodations and much, much more.
The New Brunswick Lung Association has a PDF guide that can be found here.
You can find the Lung Transplant Support Group on facebook here.

"Remember…. Everything will be ok in the end and if it's not ok, it's not the end!"
We are happy to announce we can provide support in both official languages. Contact Chantal Babineau-Clark, RRT at 1-506-478-1618, firstname.lastname@example.org for services in FRENCH. She is volunteering on Tuesday and Thursday to provide information in French about the Lung Transplant Support Group Program.
Chantal has been volunteering her time running our YogaBreathe program since 2017.
Chantal became interested in helping us after calling for information for a patient and we had a chat about the need for more help for people with COPD. When the YogaBreathe idea was formed she was the first person we called and she did not hesitate to get on board. She is showing that same enthusiasm for helping French-speaking patients!
