To help raise awareness about the occurrence of lung cancer in women, to erase the stigma of smoking associated with lung cancer, and to provide support and empowerment for women and their families facing a diagnosis of lung cancer and through survivorship.
There is hope! The Lung Cancer Forum is made up of many women who are successfully battling lung cancer or who have been cured of lung cancer.
Started in 2006, the Lung Cancer Forum is a community of lung cancer patients, survivors, physicians, researchers, friends and advocates. We share the goal of expanding support services and improving quality of life for lung cancer patients and survivors, through education, conversation, and coordinated action.
The Women’s Lung Cancer Forum is an initiative of the Women’s Lung Cancer Program, an integrated program developed in cooperation between the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center.
