HOPE Summit is a unique weekend conference for people living with lung cancer, survivors, and caregivers to learn how to manage and navigate aspects of everyday life with lung cancer while building their community of support.

In this excerpt from a Facebook Live discussion, HOPE Summit Ambassadors Frank Sierawski, Kristen Kimball, and Lia Ridout talk to LUNGevity's Kristi Griffith about what they’re looking forward to at HOPE Summit this year.

The conference features inspirational speakers and key experts on practical issues of cancer survivorship. Sessions will cover many of the issues patients, survivors, and caregivers face in everyday life, including managing mental health and sexual health, and financial issues, such as navigating insurance and legal rights in the workplace. We will also have discussions on parenting through a lung cancer diagnosis.

The Summit also offers peer-to-peer opportunities where attendees can hear directly from lung cancer survivors and caregivers who have walked the journey and have a firsthand view of what it is like to live, survive, and thrive after a lung cancer diagnosis.


NEW this year - We will include families in our special weekend! We have planned programming for children from grades 1-12 during the day on Saturday.

And don't miss the Patient Resource Fair on Friday from 1-5 pm that will feature many partners and vendors, specific oncogene groups, pharmaceutical partners, and wellness resources. Live demonstrations and talks will occur throughout the afternoon.
