The global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has serious implications for us all, but it’s especially concerning for the immunocompromised. In this episode, we discuss what you need to know about coronavirus and lung cancer. We’ll talk with lung cancer patients about how difficult it is to get a coronavirus test and the challenges families and caregivers have living with someone with lung cancer during COVID-19. Plus, hear from lung cancer specialist at Cedars-Sinai Cancer Center, Dr. Karen Reckamp, to understand how COVID-19 specifically affects lung cancer patients, and how can all do our part to protect our communities.
