The Importance of Support


Recommended Posts

At LUNGevity we recognize the importance of supporting everyone affected by a lung cancer diagnosis.

LUNGevity offers the largest online network of support for all people affected by lung cancer.

We also provide the opportunity and platform to raise awareness about the challenges and disparities in lung cancer awareness, patient support and disease treatment by helping to make lung cancer a national priority and funding innovative research.

We are grateful for our generous donors whose support allows us to offer these free services.

LUNGevity Hope Summit: During the month of MAY

Lung cancer survivors: Learn, collaborate,advocate and make a difference in the fight against lung cancer. http://events.lungevity.org/site/TR?fr_id=3420&pg=entry

Lung Cancer Support Community

LUNGevity Foundation’s Lung Cancer Support Community (LCSC) is a dedicated social network offering support to anyone touched by lung cancer. Created in 2002, LCSC is the largest online lung cancer support network providing users with an extensive message board, the latest lung cancer information, 24-hour support, a card circle program, and notice for lung cancer events and advocacy opportunities that fund LUNGevity’s lung cancer research!

LUNGevity LifeLine

LifeLine Support Partners are lung cancer survivors or co-survivors (family members and caregivers) who have walked the lung cancer journey and have come out the other side. They volunteer to mentor and offer encouragement, advice, experience and hope to those newly diagnosed and anyone needing additional support through a one-on-one personal connection by email or telephone.

LUNGevity LinkUP

LUNGevity LinkUP raises awareness about the number one cancer killer - lung cancer and builds community awareness about lung cancer and LUNGevity. The goal is to train advocates to take action! Together as one voice, the goal of LUNGevity LinkUP is to catapult lung cancer into a national priority stemming from both the local and national level. When someone signs up to be a member of the LUNGevity LinkUP we will provide training and support to enable them to become an active participant in the fight against lung cancer and empower the participant to be more involved with LUNGevity Foundation.

Caregiver Resource Center

Being a caregiver is both a rewarding and challenging experience. Caregivers willingly and selflessly devote their time to care for their loved ones battling lung cancer, while often neglecting themselves in the process. There are resources available to help caregivers be the best they can be. On this page, you will find ways to ask for help from friends and family, to get support from other caregivers, and to get real help with end-of-life issues.
