Patients

Whether you are newly diagnosed, have had a recurrence, are currently in treatment or are a survivor who is disease-free, you and your family have a place to help and people to turn to at the ALCF.

“When Lung Cancer enters your life, your world spins on a different axis. Your physical, mental, psychological and emotional terrain gets rearranged by a diagnosis that brings you and your family fear and uncertainty. This is what happened to me in 2004.

“As a newly diagnosed person, I wanted information and I wanted it NOW. I searched and was surprised by how difficult it was to find. When I realized that ‘navigational tools’ specific to Lung Cancer simply did not exist, I felt frustrated and angry, but I also knew that I could, would and must change this for me and for others. And so that’s what I did.” – Bonnie J. Addario
