The safety of lung cancer survivors is our top priority. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will be holding this event virtually.
Our thanks go out to our Presenting Sponsor, Karst vonOiste, and the sponsoring companies listed below who so generously make this event possible for lung cancer survivors and their caregivers.
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 education 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.
