Advanced Practice Nurse - Lung Cancer Nurse Consultant
Mary Duffy has worked with lung cancer patients and their families for over 20 years.
Before this, Mary had observed the injustices faced by those living with the disease – the poor prognosis, the pain and the lack of psychosocial support – and she knew she had to help.
Even more startling to Mary, was how much people kept their diagnosis to themselves, with stigma silencing their cries for help.
Lung Foundation Australia needs your support to change the landscape of lung cancer by funding for research and better treatment options, and campaigning against the stigma that acts as a barrier to action.
