Patient Stories

“You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and the manner in which you live. So live. Live. Fight like hell. And when you get too tired to fight, lay down and rest, and let somebody else fight for you.”

Stuart Scott’s emotional words embody what so many lung cancer patients know to be true. We’ve made it our mission at the ALCF to fight beside you and for you.

The lung cancer SURVIVORS below continue to fight that fight and beat cancer every day with the way that they live. We hope their stories, photos, and videos inspire you to do the same.
