Patient Resource Information
It is difficult for patients and families to find information about lung cancer and treatment. In St. Louis, Lung Cancer Connection provides newly diagnosed patients with a free LCC canvas bag that contains up-to-date information about lung cancer diagnoses and treatment of the disease.
Lung Cancer Connection information bags are available at most St. Louis area cancer centers and hospitals. If you are interested in receiving a bag, please contact your hospital or cancer center. If your hospital or cancer center does not provide resource bags, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The bags include: A sleeve with a welcome letter, cancer support community information, a bracelet, and a car sticker. Next are ASCO materials: single sheets on lung cancer and understanding immunotherapy and booklets on cancer survivorship, non-small cell lung cancer, and caregiving. Then Lung Cancer Alliance information on coping with reactions to your diagnosis/stigma, a YMCA booklet about healing the whole person, and Radon information including a booklet on protecting your family and a citizen's guide to Radon. Lastly, a patient resource guide on lung cancer.
