There are many ways to find the support you need.

Joining a lung cancer group can be an important part of successfully navigating the disease.

These groups create space for people to talk about life with lung cancer and even make new friends. Because each person has a unique experience with lung cancer, they may join a group for different reasons, whether it be to meet people with similar experiences, find emotional support, ask questions, or share advice.

No matter the reason for joining, these groups are positive, helpful places where all are welcome.
