Resources

Multiple resources exist across the nation to provide patients and families with medical help, social services, financial guidance, clinical trial information and advice about living with Lung Cancer (diet, exercise, etc). ALCF’s list of Lung Cancer websites, both local and national, is a valuable resource for anyone looking for help in understanding and coping with this disease.

A great place to start is ALCF’s Latest News where you’ll find updates on the organization as well as the latest news on Lung Cancer research.
