HOPE Summit is amazing and inspiring! Everything that LUNGevity does is to lift us up and inspire us as survivors. They do their jobs so well.

-Jessica Steinberg, stage IV ALK

At HOPE Summits, participants learn, collaborate, advocate, and use their voices and stories to make a difference in the fight against lung cancer. The summits feature inspirational speakers, medical expert forums, lung cancer survivor-specific sessions, and opportunities for lung cancer survivors to connect with other survivors and share their stories with the public and the media. There are sessions for survivors in active treatment and others for those out of treatment to address their specific needs.

HOPE Summits are free to attend; however, for the National HOPE Summit, held in Washington, DC, there is a registration fee of $50, which includes 2½ days of sessions, materials, and meals.

Join the Survivor Challenge: raise $1,500 or more for LUNGevity Foundation (or $2,000 for a survivor and one caregiver), and you’ll be eligible for round-trip US transportation and hotel for the next National HOPE Summit in Washington, DC.

If you are a first-time survivor participant, you may qualify for a full or partial travel grant. Full travel grant awards cover round-trip airfare within the United States and two nights of hotel accommodations at or near the Keybridge Marriott. Travel grant recipients who wish to attend the Advocate Only meeting before the HOPE Summit begins will need to cover the cost of an additional night of hotel.

For more information on the Survivor Challenge or travel grant opportunities, please email [email protected].
