BreatheEasy Eastbourne Support Group is run by a group of volunteers who suffer with lung illnesses so the most important thing we do in terms of support is offer an understanding ear from someone that has actually been there.
It is our aim that no person should have to suffer alone. Therefore, we try our hardest to be accommodating and comforting, offering a safe place where people with lung illnesses can express themselves without prejudice.
It doesn’t matter what lung condition you have, we aim to support everyone. Those that we support have various conditions ranging from Asthma, COPD, Bronchoectasis, IPF, Carcinoma, Asbestosis and many more. What matters is that we're connected and we strive to provide a supportive environment. In essence, we support each other through sharing experiences, knowledge and feeling.
BreatheEasy Eastbourne not only supports illness sufferers but also their family, carers and friends. Everyone is welcome!
