Patient Portal

We are so glad you’re here! We want this page to be your home on the web where you can come to learn about the latest news affecting lung cancer patients, get support from stories shared by other patients, and maybe tell your own.

We also want you to know that we are here for you! If you have questions about information we have here, navigating the complex path of cancer treatment, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Your message will be delivered directly to Danielle Hicks (Director of Patient Services and Programs), Michele Zeh (Patient Navigation and Services Coordinator), and Kim Parham. They are always happy to hear from you.

Also, if you are ROS1-positive, we have a special portal area dedicated to ROS1ers. Please click this link to go there.

Regardless of where you are on your cancer journey, ALCF is with you.
