Be a part of the conversation about “Breaking the Stigma of Lung Cancer” at the 2019 Lung Cancer Initiative Summit. This annual event brings together lung cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals and researchers for a unique opportunity to learn and network with others impacted by lung cancer.
No one should feel shame by a lung cancer diagnosis. Let’s come together to raise awareness about a cancer that no one deserves!
