Get Social Support

Taking care of your emotional health is a key part of your cancer treatment.  Family, friends, co-workers and your healthcare team can give you support in many ways. 

Ask for help with chores and errands when you are worn out.  We are pleased to be partners with Lotsa Helping Hands, a private, web-based tool that allows you to decide how friends and family can best help out when you need it most.

Resources in your own community can be a great help to you and your family.  Support groups can offer you a place to share your thoughts with others who know what you are going through.  Join a lung cancer support group. 

The American Lung Association offers Better Breathers Clubs throughout the country provide support to people living with many different lung diseases and also to their family members and caregivers. 

Early detection of lung cancer can increase survival rates. Call the Lung Helpline at 1-800-LUNGUSA or talk to your doctor about lung cancer screening.
