Lung Cancer Awareness: Advice Sharing

Awareness month is about community and sharing with each other. What is some advice you would share with your fellow community members?

  1. To keep spreading awareness one person at a time. Just tell your story and that will spread awareness. If you can spread awareness on a bigger level, great, but if not, every one of us has a story to tell someone. Spreading awareness will help decrease the stigma and help increase funding for research!

    1. Lung cancer treatments are improving, yet it still kills more men and women than any other cancer.
      Here are some helpful tips for dealing with cancer.
      1. Don’t smoke cigarettes.
      2. Eat foods rich in vitamin C.
      3. Prevent infection.
      4. Work on your breathing technique.
      5. Spend as little time as possible in contaminated regions.
      6. Get some exercise.

      1. Thank you for taking the time to share! All the best, Alisa, Team

      2. , You are most welcome and I appreciate that you have gone through my helpful tips for dealing with cancer.

    2. I am new to this and I thank God you are here for me I struggle with what has happened to me.

      1. Welcome, I'm glad you found our community. Are you in treatment for lung cancer or have had a diagnosis? Please feel free to share, we are here to support each other. Warmly, Alisa

    3. Hi Alisa, thankyou for getting in touch. I have had surgery my right lower lobe removed and 4 chemo days over the following months.....that all finished some months back. I am now having scans every six months. That is where I am at now Alisa. I am just wondering should I be getting any other daily drug to help maintain me ?

      1. Hi, so glad to hear you finished treatment and doing well. I also get scanned regularly to watch for anything else that may pop up. While we cannot give out medical advice, perhaps there is an Integrative Center in your area to consult with. I go to an integrative medical center in NYC, but you have to be very careful of scams and make sure you check them out should you decide to explore. Again, this is my own personal experience, speaking as a patient. Feel free to update us. Wishing you all the best, Alisa
