LUNGevity Foundation Launches One-of-a-Kind Lung Cancer Survivor Resource Center

Online resource provides for critical unmet need in growing survivor community

WASHINGTON, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  LUNGevity Foundation, the nation's largest lung cancer-focused organization, announces the launch today of its Survivor Resource Center to fill a growing need in the lung cancer community. As investments in research lead to progress in early detection and lung cancer treatments, more people are living longer and better with lung cancer than ever before. The Survivor Resource Center is a hub for survivors at any stage of their lung cancer journey looking for support, information about the disease, treatment options and other resources that can help make coping and living with lung cancer easier. LUNGevity's Survivor Resource Center is the first online resource wholly devoted to lung cancer survivors.

"LUNGevity Foundation is pleased to offer the lung cancer community this vital resource. We are one of the few places lung cancer patients and their loved ones can find a community of support in their struggles with the disease," said Andrea Stern Ferris, LUNGevity Foundation president. "As the nation's largest private funder of lung cancer research, we are heartened that progress in treatment for the disease is helping more people survive longer and live better than ever before. LUNGevity's Survivor Resource Center will help those affected chart the new path in survivorship."

According to the National Cancer Institute, "Survivorship" begins at the time of diagnosis and continues during and after treatment for as long as a patient lives. Cancer survivorship includes the physical, emotional, and day-to-day issues of the cancer journey. The Survivor Resource Center arms patients with information and resources connected to their physical and emotional well being, as well as offering practical support, such as information related to receiving assistance with prescription drug costs. The Center also connects patients with peer to peer support through LUNGevity's Lung Cancer Support Community (LCSC), the largest dedicated social network offering support to anyone touched by lung cancer.
