Patients and caregivers may call or email as often as they wish, and the service is offered completely free of charge!
“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 2-year survivor, Cliff Norton. Due to the level of distress and anxiety that is so normal to feel at the time of diagnosis, individuals often need additional teaching.
“It has been a year packed full of life”, stated Frank Noll, who retired soon after his lung cancer diagnosis to focus on art, travel and family. “What was missing (after my diagnosis) was a connection with others who faced a similar path, someone to talk to who would take me through this.” The Free to Breathe Support Line will connect patients and their families to helpful resources.
Joe Hamilton, who lost his mother to lung cancer, sees the value of getting involved in the cause like this, “We live in honor of our loved ones. I feel better knowing I am making efforts towards her legacy and life. Something good will come of this.” The Support Line will help people facing lung cancer find ways to bring meaning to their experience.
