“NB Lung helped me navigate the complex journey for a transplant, all the paperwork needing filled out for various reasons, directing me to the right government departments and calling on my behalf to expedite the process.”
Stigma about lung diseases can cause patients to delay talking to their health professional, which can delay diagnosis and treatment. NB Lung thanks these New Brunswickers for sharing their experiences with us.
