Lungcancer.org was founded in 1998 by CancerCare, a national non-profit organization providing free, professional support services to individuals, families, caregivers, and the bereaved to help them better cope with and manage the emotional and practical challenges arising from cancer. The main purpose of lungcancer.org is to be a source of support and information for lung cancer patients and their loved ones.
CancerCare’s services include counseling and support groups, educational publications and workshops, and financial assistance. All of our services are provided by professional oncology social workers and are offered completely free of charge.
