There are many groups across the country that are dedicated to supporting people living with lung cancer, their family and friends, and loved ones who are no longer with us. These groups, known as advocacy groups, focus on different aspects of support and care. Each and every group is committed to helping people with lung cancer.
Two of the most widely known nonprofit organizations supporting the lung cancer community—the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation and the Lung Cancer Alliance—have joined forces as the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. The goal of this group is to provide information and support, to conduct research and support research funding, and provide access to treatments and care for people living with lung cancer.
