LUNGevity Foundation Hosts Third Annual Hope Summit During May, Lung Cancer Hope Month

Nation's largest lung cancer-focused nonprofit encourages lung cancer survivors to participate

WASHINGTON, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  LUNGevity Foundation, the nation's largest lung cancer-focused nonprofit, is inviting lung cancer survivors from across the nation to register for the 2013 LUNGevity Hope Summit taking place May 3-5, 2013 in Arlington, VA. The two day conference, taking place during Lung Cancer Hope Month, is designed for lung cancer survivors of all ages and stages of disease, currently in or out of treatment. 

The summit provides an opportunity for participants to celebrate lung cancer survivorship, and gives survivors the opportunity to learn, collaborate, advocate and use their voices and stories to make a difference in the fight against lung cancer. 

The topics to be addressed at this year's Hope Summit will include inspirational speakers, medical expert forums, advocacy forums, lung cancer survivor-specific sessions, and opportunities for lung cancer survivors to share and connect with other survivors. There will be sessions specifically for survivors in active treatment and others for those out of treatment to address their specific needs.

Hope Summit attendees from previous years describe the value of the summit in very personal terms:

"Being in a room with 50 or so cancer survivors is an awe-inspiring event. Being in a room with 50 or so LUNG cancer survivors is as life-changing as the disease itself. Thank you all for an amazing weekend. " - Alan

"The LUNGevity Hope Summit gave me the powerful sense of community that I often see in other groups, such as breast cancer or HIV/AIDS survivors, which I had not experienced since my lung cancer diagnosis.  Your inspirational speakers, medical experts, advocacy training, and lung cancer survivor-specific workshops will be key in empowering us as cancer survivors to connect with other survivors and share our stories" - Jose

LUNGevity designated May as Lung Cancer Hope Month to celebrate the hope for better treatments and cures for lung cancer, as well as improving lung cancer survival rates and ensuring a higher quality-of-life for lung cancer patients and their loved ones.

LUNGevity is offering a limited number of travel grants, based on need and availability. Deadline for grant applications is March 30. LUNGevity Foundation is also offering Community Partnerships to select organizations.  Please contact Katie Brown, LUNGevity Director of Support and Advocacy, at kbrown@lungevity.org with any questions related to the Hope Summit or Community Partnerships.
