Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I was diagnosed stage four in 2009. I came through some very harsh treatments and made it. I have been cancer free for almost four years. During the first part of treatment and beyond, it was frustrating to have no support in our little town. I went through all the usual emotional issues and felt alone. I bumped into Lungevity by accident in a magazine ad. I looked it up online and found a great resource for support. I made many online friends who knew what I was going through and gladly accepted me. I have been to two of the Hope Summit gatherings in Wash. DC. I have learned so much from this wonderful group and feel like part of a big national family and beyond. I am aware of their tremendous fundraising efforts and all they do to help research. They work so hard and they know so many of us on a personal level too. They have made a huge impact during my recovery and continue on our behalf as patients, caregivers, survivors and families.

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