LUNGevity LinkUP

Join us in our efforts to educate and advocate for

  • Increased research funding into the early detection and treatment of lung cancer
  • Better resources for lung cancer patients, their families, and their caregivers
  • An end to the stigma of lung cancer
    • About 60% of all new lung cancer diagnoses are among people who have never smoked or are former smokers
    • Regardless of the cause, no one deserves lung cancer

What it takes to be a member

Members are encouraged to:

  • 2 conference calls a year. These calls are informative, offering support and free training to give you the confidence and resources you need to engage others and raise awareness about lung cancer. Members will receive an invitation by mail to participate in upcoming calls.
  • Participate in or host a LUNGevity event. Participate in an existing local event, volunteer, or host an event of your choice! From a simple email campaign to a walk or sporting event, we will walk you through it every step of the way. Start at your own pace. Let us know your Action Plan and we can help you execute it.
  • Report back! Keep us updated on what’s happening in your state and in your local community. Let us know about news stories, local support groups, and cancer events, and if possible we will engage, support, and offer information to spread the word about lung cancer and LUNGevity.

We will provide our LUNGevity LinkUP members with

LUNGevity LinkUP Member Packet: Sign up today and you will receive a lung cancer and LUNGevity FAQ sheet, exclusive LUNGevity wristband, brochures, and informational materials to help you become an effective advocate.
