If you have completed lung cancer treatment, here is a summary of key points to consider to help you find your new normal.

  • Get involved helping others facing lung cancer. Sharing your words of wisdom with other lung cancer patients means more than you will ever know.
  • Stay healthy, emotionally and physically, to help manage the stress that comes when initial treatment has finished. It also helps you feel like yourself again.
  • Now is a good time to discuss with your care team and family what your care looks like in the future. This includes filling out appropriate paperwork, like an advance directive.
