Lung Cancer Alliance
July 10, 2009

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.
