The Lung Cancer Alliance is the only national non-profit organization dedicated solely to providing patient support and advocacy for people living with or at risk for the disease. An average of 439 people a day will die of lung cancer. It is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States among every ethnic group. The mission of The Lung Cancer Alliance is to lead the movement to reverse decades of stigma and neglect by empowering patients, elevating awareness and changing health policy.
An award winning and comprehensive website with the most up to date and relevant information on every aspect of lung cancer, prevention, early detection, treatment, support, resources, latest news, advocacy issues and how to get involved in the movement.
They provide a phone buddy program which is a free program offering peer-to-peer mentoring support that matches survivors or caregivers to others who have similar experiences providing long distance calling cards for all participants. Each volunteer undergoes training sessions and has access to LCA resources and manuals.
