Bringing #hope home.

Lung Cancer "Living Room" Support Group



Are you a newly diagnosed lung cancer patient, or a patient in any place in your diagnosis?  Are you looking for support, patient education and empowerment, help in obtaining second opinions with some of the foremost thought leaders in the world, or just need an informed ear to bend?  Then, contact Danielle Hicks, Director of Patient Advocacy at The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (BJALCF), to learn more about the Lung Cancer "Living Room". 

This monthly support group welcomes patients, survivors, families and friends. The hope is that during the time together, we will share stories, talk through difficulties, give advice that only someone who really knows can give, raise awareness and offer support.  The group also features guest speakers and some of the foremost thought leaders in the world on lung cancer.

Tuesday evening, May 15th, I attended my first "Living Room" session from my laptop in the kitchen of my home outside Atlanta, Georgia.  I was amazed at what a wonderful and effective resource this is - from an emotional as well as an informational perspective.  You will not be dissapointed.
