Join us Saturday, November 17 at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott, located near the Mall of America, as we continue to build a community that cares, shares and nurtures one another to improve, prolong and save lives.

Finding Hope Together, hosted by A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation, is a one-day lung cancer summit planned by and for lung cancer survivors and caregivers. This event provides education and resources to lighten the burden of cancer. Led by oncologists, researchers, nurses and other health care professionals, topics will include new research findings, updates on treatments and clinical trials, nutrition, managing side effects, emotional self-care, legal aid and numerous educational sessions focused on living with lung cancer. Networking meals allow survivors to make new friends who understand what you are going through.

The $50 fee includes a networking breakfast, lunch, happy hour and all classroom materials.

Summit participants will walk away with real tools and new resources to help as they and their loves ones continue living with lung cancer.
