Yes!  It is such a great way for everyone to connect.  And now we are getting to the point where different days might have a different feel.  We are getting experts lined up for every few weeks for the Friday calls.  It's all very exciting and we hope that by staying connected it will make the winter a little more bearable, especially for those of us in the northern part of the country! :)

Thanks LUNGevity! 

I would have been "lost" without these meet-ups last Spring and I'm truly honored and happy to do my little part to co-host the Wednesday Wisdom Meeting with Tom each week.  Being apart from my two little grandbabies, as well as all my other family and friends was a huge challenge for me and the only people I found that could totally understand this were fellow lung cancer survivors.

I really enjoy these so much and know that right now many in our community are really struggling trying to deal with Living with Lung Cancer during Covid and we've already seen that it affects everyone who has been in any of the recent meeting, so we are truly grateful to LUNGevity to stepping up and offering more options for us the "talk' to each other.  These meetings have been so helpful for me and it's brought a new world of friends into my life, and who doesn't want more friends!  ❤️ 

As much as we all want it, Covid is not going away anytime soon 😔 and having others to "talk too" that are also dealing with this same struggle is a wonderful thing.  THANK YOU so much and thanks to all the survivors who join in each week.

For everyone new that has recently signed up, you will be getting a weekly email from LUNGevity with the Zoom links for all sessions.  Because we just added in these two new days, emails were frequent last week but we hope to get it down to one so it isn't too much to keep track of.  I'm so excited that we will have some new faces joining us!

Hi Lou! They recently revamped the website so the original link might be broken.  Please try this link: https://www.lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/support-services/virtual-meetups-for-lung-cancer-patients-survivors-and-0 and I will update the original post.

 

Michelle, did you take the virtual meetup survey? If you need the link I can PM it to you. :)
