“First you get told you have lung cancer. And then you don’t have anybody or anything to help you. That’s pretty devastating. It feels like you’re the only one going through this.”
— Myrtle Chidester, LCC Co-Founder
A diagnosis of of lung cancer is often heartbreaking to those receiving the news, as well as friends and loved ones who care for them. There is so much value in connecting with another person who has battled lung cancer and understands your feelings, someone who can help guide you through what can be an overwhelming task to face on your own.
In the St. Louis area, Lung Cancer Connection has partnered with the Cancer Support Community (formerly the Wellness Community) of Greater St. Louis to underwrite a monthly lung cancer networking group. The goal of the group is to help meet patients' emotional challenges, as well as answer their many concerns related to medical treatments. Each meetings is facilitated by both a licensed clinical social worker and an oncology nurse.
The Lung Cancer Networking Group meets on the first Thursday of each month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Cancer Support Community, 1058 Old Des Peres Road, St. Louis, MO 63131. Attendance is free and open to lung cancer patients and those who care for them. No registration is required. For more information call 314-238-2000.
