What Is Breathing Buddies?

Breathing Buddies is a community for Temple Lung Center patients and caregivers who are facing similar situations and seeking opportunities for support and engagement. As part of our commitment to helping people with serious lung disease, Breathing Buddies is a safe space for connecting and encouraging one another to breathe easier and live more active lives.

We are a community that provides support, education and resources to patients with advanced lung disease and their caregivers so that they may enjoy a high quality of life.

Why Become a Breathing Buddy?

Living with a chronic lung disease is a challenge. With the right support, though, you’ll find there are many ways for you and your loved ones to breathe easier and live more active lives. In fact, some healthcare providers suggest the simple act of participating in support groups — and connecting with others — may have a direct impact on mood improvement and decreased stress.
