About Second Wind Lung Transplant Association, Inc.

The Second Wind Lung Transplant Association, Inc., is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for lung transplant recipients, lung surgery candidates, people with related pulmonary concerns, and their families. The association provides support, advocacy, education, information, and guidance through a spirit of service, “adding years to their lives and life to their years.” Established in 1995 by a group of lung transplant recipients, candidates, and their families, Second Wind has quarterly support group meetings to provide educational programs (e.g., on nutrition, effects of medications and exercise, physical therapy) for both lung transplant candidates and recipients; to share experiences; and to enjoy social activities. In addition, the organization provides educational programs; seeks to increase organ donor awareness; and provides a quarterly newsletter entitled “AirWays” to its members.
