The 2021 Midwest Lung Cancer Summit for survivors and caregivers is a one-day event offering classes, support, meals, massages, and networking opportunities for people living with lung cancer. The event focuses on offering resources that have the power to improve quality of life and healthcare outcomes. Scholarships are available to offset the $50 registration fee.
Our current plan is to host the summit as an in-person event in 2021.
As we get closer, updates will be posted here.
In 2018, A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation hosted the inaugural Midwest Lung Cancer Summit for patients and caregivers living with lung cancer. The steering committee (composed mostly of survivors) identified three goals that were important to the success of this event:
- Provide people living with lung cancer real tools and updated information to help them on their journey;
- Create a culture that leaves program attendees feeling hopeful about their future; and
- Provide opportunities for people living with lung cancer to meet others on the journey in order to expand their support network.
