Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went to my first Hope Summit in 2014 and haven’t missed one since. There’s no way to describe the feeling of being among so many others who are experiencing the same thing. This Summit just keeps getting bigger and better (if that’s possible) every year and there’s many of us who attend every year. It has become a family reunion for many of us. It’s such an educational and uplifting experience and everyone affected by lung cancer owes it to themselves to attend. Becoming involved with LUNGevity has opened many advocacy opportunities for me for which I’m very grateful. I want to help educate and spread awareness for this number one cancer killer and I have had and continue to have the chance to do so because of LUNGevity.

Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned of the Lungevity foundation about 4 years ago which was 8 years after my diagnosis. I had explored other organizations, but I knew I found the right one when a friend suggested I check out Lungevity. This organization is truly patient/survivor centered, offering us emotional, psychological and educational support and information. Most importantly, Lungevity offers us hope by keeping us updated on all recent developments regarding treatments. I have been living with lung cancer for 12 years now and I credit Lungevity for helping supply vital information for e to share with my care team.

This is by far the most knowledgeable, helpful, supportive and educational Lung Cancer organization out there. LUNGevity is staffed by people who are 150% invested in doing their absolute best to serve the needs of Lung Cancer patients and caregivers. Their Regional and National HOPE Summits are well organized and feature specialists in all aspects of this disease. They have our backs and work hard to keep us up to speed on the latest advances as well as provide opportunities for us to reach out to others. Thank you LUNGevity for all you do. - Melissa Crouse - Living with lung cancer for 10 years (stage 4 now)
