"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" - JoseLUNGevity 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.
