Lung Cancer Community Outreach

Outreach Is LCFA’s Mission

Lung Cancer Foundation of America is working to change the public perception of lung cancer through education and personal stories about lung cancer.

LCFA’s mission is to inform the public about the risks and symptoms of lung cancer, disseminate the latest research discoveries, and advocate for more lung cancer research funding. Through national satellite media tours, enrichment videos, and our knowledgeable speakers bureau, LCFA works relentlessly to get the message out.

“If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer.”

“Lung cancer research funding needs to be a priority.”

LCFA on Television and Radio

This year’s public education campaign started with media interviews with Dr. Denise Aberle and Dr. David Carbone discussing new lung cancer advances such as nasal swabs to updates on CBD use.

In addition to the 23% increase in the organic reach of the latest research news and valuable resources about lung cancer on LCFA’s website, LCFA’s speaker bureau members and grant-winning researchers were part of the following media coverage in 2019:

Reaching out to the Lung Cancer Community

Hope With Answers Video Series

Are you are currently battling a lung cancer diagnosis?  Or, are you helping to care for someone who is living with lung cancer? If either of these is true, the answers to your questions are very important to you. LCFA’s Hope With Answers video series is designed to bring the patient/caregiver/physician conversation into the home.

INTRO
Basic information for those newly diagnosed

INTERMEDIATE
More in-depth discussions for those who now need deeper knowledge to navigate an initial treatment plan or to even find what type of treatment might be their best option.

IN-DEPTH
The in-depth level for lung cancer patients and their families who have been navigating the journey and now need the next level of information to understand how to bridge to other treatment options if they’ve experienced resistance or their lung cancer has progressed.

Start the journey of understanding in the Intro section of the Hope With Answers videos. Or dive right in by specific topics.

Outreach by LCFA’s Speakers Bureau

The Lung Cancer Foundation of America’s Speakers Bureau is a group of survivors and those whose lives have been affected by lung cancer. Their mission is to spread awareness, information and hope in the fight against the leading cause of cancer death. Bureau speakers are available for interviews with the media.

LCFA has continued to build and promote our Speakers Bureau, a cadre of lung cancer patient/advocates, caregivers, and family members who assist with LCFA’s awareness raising initiatives.
