Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA
I learned of the LUNGevity Foundation when my mom was diagnosed with her 1st lung cancer recurrence. Her first round was simple and my nativity about lung cancer didn't prepare me for this upcoming challenge. I was crushed, my mom was crushed. I was looking for hope on the internet at all hours of the day and night. I was desperate to find 1 positive thing about my mom's possibility of survival. That's when I found LUNGevity's website and discussion forums. I had finally found my hope. It was through the helpful information on their website that I had resources available to teach my about my mom's lung cancer and recommended treatment. I was given tools to help me ask the right questions and the support to keep moving forward from the fellow advocates and survivors on the discussion forums. I gained so much from the forums that I began to give back. I shared my experience as my mom's caregiver, as well as, offered hope to those who were in desperate need of it, just as I once was. I am so very thankful for the services and information offered by the LUNGevity Foundation.
