In 2000 and 2003, though a NON SMOKER my entire life, I was stricken with lung cancer. My surgeon Dr. Christina Williamson had heard about Lung Cancer Alliance when they were in one room in Seattle, Washington trying to increase awareness about the number one cancer killer. They helped me immediately and made me feel I was not alone. Since then, LCA has moved to Washington, DC and done remarkable things for victims of lung cancer as well as families. I am so proud of what they are doing coast to coast and outside of the USA. They handle the disease by contributing to research, reaching out, advocating and leading the way. They are the best.

LCA under the team leadership of Laurie Fenton Ambrose is amazing. Just keep on going as they are. I am so impressed with their growth and the way they reach out to help a disease that came from behind the rear of all diseases.

When my daughter died from lung cancer, then I was diganoised with lung cancer, I needed information! I turned to Lung Cancer Alliance. They not only sent me lots of information, but put me in touch with a telephone buddy, who called me and gave me much encouragement. I very much appreciated the help, information, and caring I got from them. I now am a telephone buddy, and I want to give back to all those who helped me through the diffucult times I had facing this unpleasent disease.

Help lung cancer research programs, and have more screening for lung cancer.

Lack of funds.

As a newly diagnosed lung cancer patient, I was overwhelmed with information. And since I was diagnosed with stage IV NSCLC, what I was reading was dismal and discouraging. Connecting with others that are surviving and joining in the fight to end the stigmas that lung cancer is only a smokers disease have helped me become hopeful about my future and survival.

When I lost my husband and his brother to lung cancer,I was devastated. I needed to process my feelings and learn more about this horrible disease. Both of these men stopped smoking 20 or more years before they were diagnosed;however,it was the lung cancer alliance that provided me with the facts that you never hear in the media.People look down on lung cancer patients because they smoked, regardless of the circumstances,but LCA through their diligence gets the facts out and takes the shame away. I mourn these precious souls everyday;but I am grateful to the LCA for being there for me and allowing me to hold my head up high and know that they are doing more than any other organization has ever done to see that research is done and everyone has a chance to know the truth about this dreaded disease.

I am a 13 year lung cancer survivor who has been involved with the LCA for over 7 years. First I was given support by the many caring individuals that make up this organization. I have since giving back to other lung cancer survivors through this organization. I also have seen them push for legislative measures to support the research funding for this much maligned disease.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My view of how a few people can change people's attitudes towards a disease and the people affected by it.

When my mom was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer, I searched the web to find any information about it that I could. My resources were limited. After approaching Lunc Cancer Allinace for information, they sent me packets and booklets and books to read. To me it was comforting to know there were daughters, sons, husbands, wifes, sisters and brothers like me...facing what I was facing. The informatio they sent me was not good news. The average life span of a patient fighting non-small cell lung cancer is 13 months. My mom lived 13 months after diagnosis. Lung cancer must be put in the forfront of the mind. My mom never smoked and because of the stigmatism associated with lung cancer, her as well as countless other lives are lost. And just because someone smoked doesn't mean they deserve a death sentance. The funds to aid in survival need to increase and patients need to be given a fair fight! Heather Delaney

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

supporting me and my family while battleing lung cancer.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do every thing I could to raise funds and awerness of this horrible disease. They are doing a great job against all their odds!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

just the support they made available to me and my family during our battle.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

compassionate

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

it would only be a drop in the bucket, but might be able to build more awerness in the puublic and local communitities.

Ways to make it better...

there where more places in the Seattle area where my services can be used.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the stigmatism associated with smoking and the lack of funding and research beacuse of the stigmatism.

One thing I'd also say is that...

LCA needs all the press and people talking about it to bring this matter to the forfront. It helped in my time of need and could do so much more with the public knowing more about them and the disease.

The Lung Cancer Alliance keeps me informed and connected to the problems, issues, and solutions related to lung cancer. It is an invaluable resource to me, a lung cancer survivor (since 1999.) The proactive measures taken by the LCA provide me with an advocate, an advocate that speaks for me to the medical community, the legislative community, the media community. I could not do all this by myself. The LCA is a voice for the isolated cancer victim and gives that victim a little hope knowing that someone out there cares and is fighting for a cure! Thanks to the LCA!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Increased interest by the media and others in presenting the case for adequate treatment and funding for lung cancer.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give lots of recognition to the employees.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Frequent contact with messages of hope and messages of action related to finding a cure to lung cancer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Helpful, caring people who had experience and empathy for the people they were working with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Be more effective in spreading the word about the disease, help more people, become more effective advocates for people who cannot speak for themselves.

Ways to make it better...

More interest from the larger cancer fighting community in trying to fight this disease!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lung cancer is treated as a disease people deserve to get because they smoked. This is not an accurate perception but is a prevalent one in today's' world. The biggest obstacle is getting the word out that lung cancer affects all kinds of people!

One thing I'd also say is that...

I appreciate the contact I have made with the LCA. I no longer feel quite so isolated as I walk the daily walk of lung cancer victim.
