Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with non small cell Stage 4 lung cancer in April 2014. I had no one to talk to about my fears and questions. The Cancer Society gave me the number of Lungevity. These people are terrific. Within 2 days Katie had me in touch with someone who has the same type of cancer. I've finished one round of chemo and will start Round 2 shortly. Then that 1st mentor had a set-back and Katie got me another mentor as soon as I asked for one. There is such a stigma about lung cancer, almost as if we caused it. One breast cancer survivor even asked me how much I smoked to bring it on myself. I would be lost without the caring support of these people.
