Family Challenges Twitter Chat 9/5


Recommended Posts

A lung cancer diagnosis presents a unique set of challenges for families. Many patients diagnosed with lung cancer will eventually require support from a family caregiver. According to the National Cancer Institute, family caregivers provide "a complex array of support tasks that extend across physical, psychological, spiritual & emotional domains."

As a result, daily routines may change and schedules may be centered around treatment. Everyone in the family may have to take on new roles and responsibilities. Cancer can also put a strain on internal relationships, which may lead to communication difficulties within the family and with health care providers.

Join the #LCCaregiver Twitter Chat on Wednesday, September 5, at 8:00 PM ET to discuss family challenges and learn tips and strategies from LUNGevity and from other lung cancer caregivers. Use #LCCaregiver to join the conversation on Twitter.


LC Caregiver Twitter chats are held the first Wednesday of each month at 8:00 PM ET. The topics are geared toward current lung cancer caregivers, but patients, survivors, advocates, health care providers, and lung cancer experts are welcome to attend. If you'd like to submit an idea for a topic, please leave a comment below.
