  1. Hello to everyone , my name is Irasema and I live in México. I have had this cancer for over 12 years now. It began as a breast cancer and after the years it became a lung cancer. I've been into many different kinds of treatments, but right now my biggest nightmare is I feel incredibly exhausted , and I mean physically. I can barely stand up to visit the bathroom. I won't even tell you about all I've been through but I would like to know if someone went through such an experience, and if there is something that helped regarding this terrible scenario. I just have no energy , I wonder if this is related to medication, to the illness itself or something else is going on. I will happily read your comments , thank you for your support. 

  2. I also wanted to let you know about Caregiver Virtual Support services that we have, too. You can check them out here: https://www.lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/support-services/virtual-meetups You are always welcome to join with your camera off and just listen but these meetups over zoom are great for support and information sharing. We also have Mindful Mondays that begin next week.
  3. Mental health can play a large role in your overall health. Start your week off on the right foot with Mindful Mondays! Our new virtual meetup series will be focusing on a wide variety of mindful strategies you can use to feel calmer, less stressed, and more focused. Join us Monday, September 13th for our first session! All those affected by lung cancer are encouraged to register: https://bit.ly/3BtM87q
  4. I'm sorry to hear of your husband's diagnosis. Once you get the complete picture, you can call the Lung Cancer HELPLine and they can also help with financial information as well. Lung Cancer HELPLine 844-360-5864 Please keep us updated on how the next round of tests go!
  5. Yes, I'm sorry, I missed the "non" in the "non small cell". Thanks LexieCat!
  6. Hi Justin, I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis but happy you found this wonderful community. Here is some information on navigating your diagnosis: https://www.lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/navigating-your-diagnosis Have you had biomarker testing?
  7. I'm glad your husband will begin treatment soon. I just wanted to share a little bit about chemo for lung cancer: https://www.lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/lung-cancer-101/types-of-lung-cancer/small-cell-lung-cancer-sclc We also have a Facebook group and host monthly meetups just for caregivers in case you are interested. We are here for you.
  8. I have been working concerts in concessions at an outdoor venue in the Chicago area for the past month to raise money for my daughter's dance team. It's an outdoor venue and Live Nation is making all shows require proof of negative test/vaccination starting next month. Until then each performer can set their own rules. There have been concerts that have been half full where it seems really safe to be in the crowd where people are masking and others that are packed without a mask in sight. All of this to say, if you go with the mindset of "if I don't feel comfortable I'll leave" you should definitely give it a try. Next weekend the Jonas Brothers are requiring proof of vaccine but Alanis Morisette is not. It's a confusing time to try to have fun for sure!
  9. I'm so glad you can connect post-conference and will definitely pass that on to the planning team!
  10. How do variants of #COVID19 form? LUNGevity’s Dr. Amy Moore will answer your questions about the delta variant, vaccines, and more during a virtual meetup August 31, at 6pm ET. Register at https://bit.ly/3jcx3Ru to join the Zoom discussion.
  11. I'm sorry about that. Exhibitors had the option to "staff" their booth or not so if there was a chat box, the exhibitor should have had someone there to interact with attendees. Really looking forward to getting back to in person events!
  12. ILCSC is kicking off today with Networking Meetups! I will be hosting the caregiver session and there are fantastic hosts for all of them. Hope to see you there!
  13. ILCSC starts today! Great news, if you haven't signed up yet, there is still time! Hurry over to lungevity.org/ilcsc and then join the virtual conference!
  14. You can get information about financial resources here: https://www.tagrisso.com/stage-4/support/financial.html
