    Hi @pffurr,

    Thanks so much for your question. Immunotherapy is a type of treatment that aims to boost the body’s own immune system to fight cancer cells. More can be found here: https://lungcancer.net/medications/immunotherapy/

    Regarding the expense, there may be some options!

    One of our advocates wrote about her experience receiving financial help for her immunotherapy here: https://lungcancer.net/living/insurance-agony/

    And these resources may also be able to help: https://lungcancer.net/living/resources-assistance-programs/

    Many also find oncology social workers to be a very helpful resource in navigating treatment options and financial aspects of lung cancer treatment and advocating for patients. More information on oncology social workers that may help can be found here: https://lungcancer.net/living/find-your-advocate-oncology-social-work/

    Please know that we are here for you and thinking of you, and please do reach out any time and keep us updated if you would like to!

    Warmly,
    Margot, LungCancer.net Team Member

    Never mind. I found out. Too expensive for an old guy like me.
