Hey guys, I know these boards are just getting going, but I want to let everyone know about a really awesome get-together of some amazing people. Every year, the LUNGevity Foundation hosts the Hope Lung Cancer Summit in Washington DC. This is not any type of fundraiser, or anything like that. It’s really just a gift to survivors and caregivers. It’s a chance to get together and meet 100+ LC survivors of all ages, stages, and life experiences. Have questions about a treatment you are getting ready to start and want to meet someone who has done it? This is the place. There are excellent speakers who deliver some of the latest news on what’s going on in the realm of lung cancer research and treatment, time for sharing stories, and so much more. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll definitely make lifelong friends. There is a small registration fee, but that will cover all of your materials, a cool t-shirt, and many meals. If you are unable to afford to come, they also offer a limited number of travel grants to help first-time attendees come. You can learn more about it at https://www.lungevity.org/support-survivorship/hope-summits
I will be there, and hope to see you there, too!
