Facing Lung Cancer: Support From Day One

The American Lung Association has launched Facing Lung Cancer: Support from Day One, a new web-based resource designed to guide and support those living with lung cancer and their loved ones during every stage of their disease. Lung cancer is a complex and life-changing disease—but those who are living with lung cancer are not alone. This new resource by the American Lung Association can now provide support for lung cancer patients and their caregivers from day one.

Made possible through a partnership and financial support from Lilly Oncology, Facing Lung Cancer concentrates on the most important information that people affected by lung cancer need from day one of their diagnosis. In addition to providing general lung cancer education, the site allows users to design a customized guide to use during conversations with their lung cancer care team. It also features “Ask the Experts,” a series of interview clips with renowned medical experts.
