The Lung Cancer Support Community (LCSC) is the largest online lung cancer support network with over 11,000 members. LCSC members are people living with lung cancer, caregivers, medical and health professionals, and advocates, who are unified in our common goal to improve survivorship. Users can safely share information on LCSC. Member-generated usernames help keep information private and for those who wish, remain anonymous. Forum moderators help to maintain the integrity of the site, assisting new members, and participating in discussions to offer peer to peer support. Anyone may read the forums, but you must register and be logged in to post. Overview of Features Forums and Discussion Boards There are 27 forums with topics ranging from Survivor Stories to News and Advocacy to Living Well with lung cancer. Each forum has multiple discussion boards where you can post questions and thoughts that you’d like to share with the community. Or you can weigh in on discussions that other members have posted about topics that are relevant and interesting to you. If you’ve just joined LCSC, introduce yourself in the Welcome New Members forum. Tell us a bit about yourself and your motivation for joining the community. If you are someone living with cancer, tell us as much as you’re comfortable sharing about your diagnosis and prognosis. Many of the other survivors who are members have been in similar situations. While no two journeys are the same, it can be very helpful to connect with someone who has been on a similar path. And you’ll find that an online support system can be very empowering and uplifting! Blogs In this section, users can create personal blogs to tell personal stories, share news, and give commentary on current lung cancer topics. If you enjoy a particular blog, you can follow it by clicking the Follow button in the top right corner of the page. Photo Galleries In this section, users can create personal or shared photo galleries. Let people know a bit more about your life by sharing photos of the people, places, and things that are important to you. Chat If you need someone to talk to or want to make a new connection, click on the Chat tab on the top menu bar. On the right hand side of the page, you’ll see a list of users who are currently logged in and ready to chat! Calendar The Calendar section shows which members are celebrating birthdays as well as upcoming lung cancer events. Whether you’re looking for a support, advocacy, or fundraising event, you’ll find all of the important information here. We are glad that you’ve joined LCSC and look forward to getting to know you!
