  1. For those of you attending the International Lung Cancer Survivorship Conference in Washington, DC, April 26-28, be sure to attend the Survivor Expo on Friday, April 26, from 12:00-4:00PM. 

    The Expo will be an informal, open session for participants to explore booths, vendors, and activities, all with information on how to live well with lung cancer. Booths will feature information on integrative medicine, taking care of yourself, healing, work and legal, family, and research/therapeutics. Participants are also invited to complete conference check-in during this time. Come to check out the booths, have professional headshots taken, watch cooking demonstrations, and try out pulmonary rehabilitation exercises.

    View the full list of exciting vendors and demonstrations:

  3. Hi, Sunshine145,

    We're glad to hear that your mom is on an effective treatment, but we're sorry that the side effects have been so rough.

    The causes of cancer-related fatigue are not fully understood. It may be the cancer and/or the cancer treatment. Here is an article from Moffitt Cancer Center with information and tips on cancer-related fatigue: https://moffitt.org/take-charge/take-charge-story-archive/cancer-related-fatigue/

    And here are some additional tips from the oncology nutrition specialists at Savor Health: https://lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/blogs/voices-from-the-community/fighting-fatigue-during-cancer-treatment

    We hope that you and your mom are doing well. Please post an update when you can!

    With gratitude,

    Lauren

  5. Hi, Angelo,

    Just wanted to check in and see how you and your wife are doing?

    Here is a link to information about different types of treatment for Stage IV NSCLC: https://lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/lung-cancer-101/treatment-options/treatment-options-for-non-small-cell-lung

    Content in LUNGevity's Lung Cancer 101 website is reviewed and approved by the LUNGevity Education Editorial Board, consisting of pulmonologists; medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists; pathologists; and physician assistants from leading institutions, as well as experienced patient advocates. 

    Has your wife had biomarker testing? For some kinds of lung cancer, comprehensive biomarker testing may provide information on whether there are changes in the cancer cells that can be treated with targeted therapies or immunotherapy. These therapies can be highly effective for patients with treatable biomarkers. You can find more helpful information here: https://lungevity.org/biomarkertesting

    Please post an update when you can. We are here for you.
