When you say cancer, it's like some think your contagious.

Why does cancer seem to scare people away? We're not contagious !

  1. Many people just don't know how to react or what to say when we tell them we have lung cancer and sometimes they are afraid because it makes them worry about themselves. We come across so many different reactions, we have no control over how others are. Thank you for commenting and sharing this thought with us, I'm sure you are not alone with that reaction. Wishing you all the best, Alisa, Lung Cancer Team Patient Leader
