Whether you are a newly diagnosed patient, experiencing a recurrence of Lung Cancer, are stable or have received treatment and are now cancer-free (that’s great!), we know that you still need support.
Regardless of where you are on your cancer journey, BJALCF is with you.
Every month our Living Room support group sessions BRING HOPE HOME to patients and their families. Through presentations by Lung Cancer specialists, physicians and researchers, this unrestricted forum covers all topics: early detection, treatment options, molecular and genetic testing, clinical trials, drug discoveries, personalized medicine, nutrition, surgical equipment and procedures, up-to-date news about advancements and more.
We share our personal stories, get advice and support from others, critical information from caring doctors and access to researchers who, like us, are fighting Lung Cancer 24/7.
Whether you join us in BJALCF’s Living Room or attend remotely through Livestream on your computer, you will be informed about Living with Lung Cancer.

The Patient 360 Program is rooted in the belief that the best way to treat Lung Cancer is through providing coordinated, multi-discipline care that integrates and considers the totality, the “big picture,” presented by each individual patient.
We consider the “big picture”.
A critical part of this approach is the Patient 360 Community Hospital Program, which is designed to accelerate Lung Cancer detection and patient treatment by utilizing the most advanced technology available to compassionate Lung Cancer specialists.
Because most patients receive treatment at their local Community Hospital, these are the centers where the greatest good can be done for the greatest number and we can improve the overall Lung Cancer patient survival rate.
Spearheaded by a pilot program led by renowned oncologist Dr. Shane Dormady at El Camino Hospital in Silicon Valley, BJALCF is working with an elite team of specialists to create an unsurpassed paradigm for Lung Cancer treatment worldwide – a patient-centric, collaborative model to provide all patients, regardless of where they live, access to the newest and most effective diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.
This new “standard of care” established at Community Hospitals will be accompanied by a formal seal of excellence awarded by the BJALCF and will ensure that no Lung Cancer patient is left behind.
We expect to enlist three new hospitals by the end of 2013
and 30-50 by the end of 2015.
