HOPE Summit is a highly supportive in-person event in which participants can learn from and empower each other. There are many opportunities to connect and develop a new support network to help break down the feeling of isolation common to this disease.

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.

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

The breakout sessions are designed to address practical issues that people with lung cancer, survivors, and caregivers face on a daily basis. Topics to be included at this year’s summit include health and wellness (both physical and mental), navigating financial issues, addressing role changes between patients and caregivers, palliative care, nutrition, and more.

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.

There is no charge to attend the conference. Attendees are responsible for their travel and hotel accommodations. LUNGevity offers two ways to help you cover the costs of attending:

(1) Participate in the Survivor Challenge, a fundraising challenge for patients/survivors

(2) Apply for a travel grant, a limited number of which will be awarded to first-time attendees
