For Patients

Funding groundbreaking research is a large part of what LCRF does. However, LCRF is also dedicated to fostering community and supporting those whose lives have been forever changed by the disease. Whether you are a patient or survivor — or a family member or friend of one — we encourage you to explore the resources below.

Free Patient and Caregiver Materials

Our educational materials include materials for patient and caregiver education, community awareness, and tools for health care professionals to better explain lung cancer diagnoses to patients. These resources are available free of charge, and can be ordered by calling our support line or ordering on our website here (note: link will open a new window).

Survivor/Caregiver Match

Talk with someone who understands. Find out more about our matching service for patients with lung cancer and their caregivers.

Clinical Trials

Participating in a clinical trial can provide access to new treatments and care that are not yet available to the public. At the same time, trials provide valuable data to researchers in search of a cure. Learn more about clinical trials.

Educate Your Community

Raise awareness about lung cancer and the importance of research. The Lung Cancer Research Foundation can provide tools for sharing patient resources at a community health fair, exhibit or awareness event. Find out how to get started.

Patient Stories

Advances in medical technology and research mean that there are more survivors than ever before. These accounts allow those whose lives are touched by lung cancer to explain, in their own words, why their hope for finding a cure is stronger than ever. Read their stories of hope.
