  1. Are there any survivors who attribute their success to any supplement of ANY kind? I can find dozens of studies for dozens of supplements that all say it retards lung cancer growth. But so far I haven't found any strong forum testimonials for any. For example, if EGCG is really as effective as the studies say, someone here should be seeing good results by pounding 10-20 grams a day. Liver toxicity aside. I assume that when people here are taking supplements, they are overdoing it. I know I sure as heck would. One capsule a day ... to heck with that. I'd be trying like, 20.
  2. New health care legislation was recently introduced in the United States Senate, and if passed, it would roll back major provisions of the Affordable Care Act. The Graham-Cassidy Bill could have important and negative implications for lung cancer patients, survivors, and their families, including higher costs and reduced access to health care coverage for the sick and low-income. Below are several areas of our concern: The bill prohibits pre-existing condition provisions; however, it allows states to permit waivers to health plans allowing them to charge different, increased, premium

The toolkit guides young adults to the information they need to make important financial decisions in the wake of a cancer diagnosis.

  6. It’s normal for someone diagnosed with cancer to experience feelings of sadness, fear, anger and grief. It’s when those feelings prevent you from functioning in your everyday life and you feel emotionally paralyzed in your situation for an extended period of time that you need to seek help. Cancer patients experience depression two times more than the general population and studies have shown that mental health and social well-being can affect the success of treatment. Those diagnosed with cancer have life plans that are interrupted, a change in physical activity and ability, role chang

Most people have heard of hospice care and have a general idea of what services hospice provides. What they don’t know or what may become confusing is that hospice provides “palliative care,” and that palliative care is both a method of administering “comfort” care and increasingly, an administered system of palliative care offered most prevalently by hospitals. As an adjunct or supplement to some of the more “traditional” car
  9. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/connecting-people-hope-katie-brown?trk=prof-post I recently read a quote from a cancer survivor about online support. “”When I stumble, there are so many virtual hands to catch me.” This is the same sentiment that has been expressed about LUNGevity’s Lung Cancer Support Community and our groups on Facebook. People impacted by lung cancer can come online and be embraced by others who have walked the same journey and who understand what they may be going thru. There is power in the written word and from receiving support from a group of people. Building a commu
