Lung Care Foundation is an initiative by a group of Professionals committed to improve Lung Health for ALL.
In view of steadily increasing pollution and growing concern with the number of lung related diseases, “Lung Care Foundation” organised a “Free Lung Screening Camp for Smokers” on 17th July, 2016 at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi. This Camp was meant for screening for Lung Cancer and diagnosing the early stage lung Cancer patients

We are happy to report that total 75 patients attended this camp. The patients were examined thoroughly including a review of their medical history and various tests. They were then advised on the best treatment options including Surgery for few. The follow-up for them will be continued in our regular OPDs. After the treatment advice, they were counselled about Diet and life style modifications including exercise to improve their lung status and quit smoking.

The camp ended on an extremely positive note with each patient being very happy.

The Lung Care Foundation has been set up to spread awareness about lung diseases, carry out community and Laboratory based research and set up state of the art treatment facilities for various lung diseases. In view of rapidly deteriorating Air quality, increasing number of Smokers and an exponential increase in the number of critical & chronic chest patients, there is an urgent need for awareness regarding the “Care & Cure” of chest diseases and early detection & treatment of the same. The Lung Care Foundation aims to address this issue.
