Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Lungevity is everything they say and more. When you want to find facts, they have them. If you, or your care-giver (or co-survivor as they have been calling them. Much more accurate term in my opinion) need someone to talk to, they they will match you with someone who has been through similar situations. And if you want to volunteer, they have many things for you to do so that no matter what you are capable of, you can feel useful and appreciated. Every member of that group is like a super pleasant ambassador into the one side of your lung cancer journey that doesn't cause emotional or physical pain. The support is unending and full of true friendship from volunteers and paid staff alike.

I am so blessed to have found them 5 years ago.

Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is just an amazing group! No matter how you want your support, you can find it here. There is a message board so you can post questions or just what you are worried about to get written support. If you just need to type it out to get a rant out, do it here and half a dozen people will give you virtual hugs and pats on the back. If you are wondering what post-op will be like, people will share their stories.
If you prefer to have some one on one support they will find you someone to email or phone who understands what you are going thru because they have been thru it too. They try to match you as close as possible for diagnosis and anything else you prefer... if you want to make sure that you are matched with someone your gender, age group, family situation... ask away and if they know of someone that fits the bill, you will have a new friend.
Then there is the annual Hope Summit in DC! Informative speakers, yummy meals and more and more survivors every year!! I can hardly wait til May for the next one!!
There is no better place for lung cancer support!
I thank God that I found them and only wish I had found them sooner!!
