Honoring #LungCancer Patient Advocates on #WLCD22

Lung cancer patient advocates share purpose, laughter, and tears. On #World Lung Cancer Day, I celebrate efforts to improve outcomes & quality of life for people living with lung cancer. Most of us have/had lung cancer. Many have died. Still, we persist because … we see how we make a difference. #LCSM #WLCD

All provide medically validated information about lung cancer, offer patient supports, and/or fund lung cancer research. Many individual patients (like me) and smaller nonprofits are also engaged in aspects of lung cancer patient advocacy.
