Resources for Patients and Caregivers

Facing Lung Cancer: Support from Day One, a new online resource designed to guide and support those living with lung cancer and their loved ones during every stage of their disease. 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. Visit Facing Lung Cancer.

The Lung HelpLine is staffed by registered nurses and respiratory therapists, and offers free counseling and support to callers seeking information about lung cancer. Here patients and family members can talk with our trained medical professionals to get the questions answered that help them better understand CT screening, recommend a physician or facility for screening, and then if diagnosed, can help answer questions about treatment options. Of course, the HelpLine does much more than that. It's a resource for those with any kind of lung disease and can offer smoking cessation assistance as well. Call the American Lung Association's Lung HelpLine at 1-800-LUNG-USA, option 2, or Chat with a Counselor.

Lung Cancer Clinical Trials Matching Service is specially designed for lung cancer patients and their families.
