Lung Cancer Support Line

The Lung Cancer Research Foundation's toll-free Lung Cancer Support Line is a completely free resource available to anyone affected by lung cancer. We offer education, connections to resources and opportunities for engagement with the advocacy community to those who have received a diagnosis of lung cancer, their caregivers and loved ones.

The Support Line is staffed Monday-Friday between 9am - 5pm ET (8am - 4pm CT), toll free: (844) 835-4325. You may also email

Lung cancer patients and their caregivers may call or email as often as they wish, and the service is offered free of charge. See below some of the ways we can help.

Lung Cancer Education

“The only thing I heard the pulmonologist say was that I was going to die. He didn’t really use those words, but that is all that I heard,” said Cliff Norton (photo at right), who received a lung cancer diagnosis.

Due to the level of distress and anxiety that is so normal to feel at the time of diagnosis, individuals often need additional information about the disease, treatment options, and other related topics. Our free educational materials and tools present a clear picture of subjects like lung cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment options, clinical trials, and caregiving. Take a look at the free educational materials we can provide you here and call our support line so we can assist you in selecting the right materials for your needs.
