- Get Involved
Being diagnosed with lung cancer is a tough time for many people. Even if you have a good support system of friends and family, it may be helpful to connect with other cancer patients who will understand your situation in a different way. You may be the kind of person who finds it hard to reach out to others. You are not alone. There are many different kinds of support available and one or more may be just what you need.
In-Person Support Groups – For some, the experience of talking with others face-to-face is the best way to connect. Ask your medical team if a group is available at your cancer center.
Telephone Support – If there aren't in-person support groups near you, if extra support is needed, or you appreciate the convenience of telephone-based support, here are some ways to connect.
Online Support – If you like the idea of being able to connect online with others from all over the country who understand lung cancer, there are several options.
Stories of Hope – You may feel alone in this fight. Sometimes just reading about someone who had a similar experience can help. Read on for stories about how other survivors coped with lung cancer. Have a story you’d like to share? Send it to us and we’ll post it as an inspiration to others.
