Dr. Meg Barnet

Medical Oncologist

For Dr. Meg Barnet, specialising in lung cancer meant being able to treat each patient as an individual, due to the multitude of causes of the disease.

When presenting to Meg, patients often feel a sense of shame or embarrassment regarding their diagnosis, a stigma she is used to seeing, and would like to change.

It’s very important for patients to be able to be treated for a cancer that’s not their fault, regardless of their life choices.

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.
