Lung Transplant Support Fund

To help cover the costs of travelling out-of-province, the Lung Association of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island offers modest financial support to help families deal with the extra costs of travel & living expenses while waiting for a lung transplant out-of-province. Residents of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island who are awaiting a lung transplant are  eligible to apply for a one-time $1000 travel assistance grant. This can either be applied for when relocating for the transplant operation or when required to go for assessment. Financial support is also available to patients who are post-transplant and looking for assistance with fitness-related fees ($200)

How do I apply for the Lung Transplant Support Fund?

1. The applicant must complete an application form.

2. The referring physician section must be completed and signed by the referring physician/specialized physician.

3.  The completed form should then be sent to the Lung Association of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
