Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with lung cancer in August of 2013. LUNGevity was one of the first online resources I found for getting information about this horrible disease. In May of 2014, I was able to attend the national HOPE Summit in Washington D.C. and connect with other fellow survivors. Since then, I have been working to spread the word about the #1 cancer killer and the stigma associated with it that contributes to the low funding of research projects. LUNGevity has a clear mission and awesome staff that go above and beyond to work with survivors, caregivers and advocates as we all work together to increase funding for essential research. I am proud to be a LUNGevity volunteer and a 14 month (and counting) survivor!
