When you have lung cancer or are caring for someone who has the disease, support groups and organizations can be extremely helpful.
1. Emotional Support-
Support groups allow people to share their experiences with others who have "been there" and gone through the range of emotions that come with a cancer diagnosis.
You can learn about your disease from other survivors. You will be motivated to know about the treatment options available.
3. Practical Information:
Support groups are also a good place to get practical advice from those who have been through the same journey.
