After my lung cancer diagnosis in October 2007, I found this forum shortly afterward. It has been a blessing in disguise! Everyone is so supportive and caring & goes above and beyond to show their concern for all it's participants. You'll find no other health forum anywhere close to this one. This was a great discovery for me & has been instrumental in my recovery process.

Lungivity came along at the perfect time for me when I was dealing with my husband's lung cancer. The support and encouragement I got from this group was amazing. Even now, after eight months of his passing I "know" I can always count on these wonderful people. God Bless each and everyone one of them.
