Lungevity is a wonderful organization to be a apart of if you are living with Lung Cancer or know of someone who is living with this disease. Full of wonderful caring people who are there to inspire and motivate and share the tears with when you want to cry. they are a great group trying to make progress in the fight against Lung cancer every day in every way!! I have served as a moderator since my wife was fighting Lung Cancer and that has been about 8 years now. Since she passed away they have been there to support me in my grief and help me through the good and bad days !!

My husband was diagnoised with LC 6 years ago. I was so scared I thought it was a death sentence. I had nowhere to turn until I found Katie and Rick Brown's support webpage. It actually changed my life. There are so many people on there who are survivors and it they gave me such encouragment. And they are so knowledgable and helpful... My husband cancer came back 3 times. The last time he was treated with cyberknife and has been C free for 1 1/2 years the longest he has gone! It was LC help that introduced us to cyberknife... Katie and Rick to me are angels here on earth!! Also because LC is on the bottom of the list as far as funding, we joined Lungevity to help with awareness. We have been walking the South Jersey Heather Saler walk for 5 years now. We ourselves have raised over $20,000.00 over those 5 years. We are making a difference but we need VOLUNTEERS!!!

I was diagnosed with Stage IIIB lung cancer in December of 2004... Soon after, I found Lungevity and felt an immediate bond as their mission matched the goals I wanted to begin to accomplish during my healing. Since 2006, I have had the awesome privelege of supporting Lungevity's mission. Their focus on grants for research is certainly proving true that "lives are being saved". I am so proud of this organization and am excited to see what the future holds for the growth of such an amazing organization. Keep up the great work Lungevity!!!

The Great!

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

continuing to watch the organization grow and further research for new and improved therapies. Also, networking and support through the foundation has helped with continuing to give me hope and support as a survivor dealing with lung cancer.

My step-dad was diagnosed last summer with Stage 4, non-operable lung cancer. He started treatment immediately and was going through Radiation and Chemotherapy at the same time. When I discovered this, I needed to find a way that I could "help" in his fight to win. I did a lot of research and came across LUNGevity Foundation. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful organization and in doing my part to help obtain money in order to aid research. I am VERY happy to announce that in March they indicated that my dad is cancer-free. I am still SO committed to this cause and will do whatever I can to spread the awareness and eventually discover a cure.

When I was dx'd almost three years ago, I read the stats for advanced lung cancer--3 to 5 yrs. I was devastated. All my family and friends were at a distance. In my search for info about my cancer, I was fortunate to find the Lungevity support community. It saved my life then and supported me through every crisis real or imagined every since. Hopefully, I am now a member who can offer the same to others. A primary message, we are not a number, we are an individual.

The Great!

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

Keeping hope that I can beat the odds relative to statistics for my cancer because I have met so many people who have.

Ways to make it better...

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

not change anything.

I can testify to the fact that there are no more horrifying words to hear than, "You have lung cancer", and it becomes a part of who you are for as long as you may survive. I have found no better place to interact with other lung cancer survivors and caregivers than Lung Cancer Support Community. Katie has done an amazing job as founder and director of it.

The Great!

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

the online Lung Cancer Support Community, which is the best online support group I've seen, and as a survivor speaker at fundraising events.

More feedback...

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

my continued sharing with other survivors and caregivers and the feeling that I'm doing something to help.

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

help it bring about the better early detection and treatments that this disease so desperately needs.

LUNGevity has given me a place to receive and give on-line support to others impacted by lung cancer - be they patients, survivors, caregivers, family, or friends. Being able to find others who have been through the same or similar treatment has been a great resource. I am particularly grateful that this site maintains a respectful attitude to different opinions. I'm guessing the site moderators have a hand in that. Katie Brown's attitude of loving kindness permeates the discussions.

The Great!

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

my ability to maintain a balanced approach to my health care.

More feedback...

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

the laughter and kindness shared by posters.

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

go a long way towards funding an effective screening for early detection of lung cancer and improve survival rates.

In 2008 I was diagnosed with lung cancer for the second time. In 1998, when I was first diagnosed, I tried to find some type of support group, but there was nothing. In 2008, when I tried again to find some type of support group, I was so pleased to find Lungevity. Initially, the people at Lungevity gave me hope, and they continue to do so to this day. I would not want to have to go through this journey without them.

The Great!

Support and information for lung cancer patients and their families.
