Forums

How easy or difficult do you find communicating with your care team?

I came across this discussion by Dr. West, Better Communication Leads to Better Outcomes for Cancer Patients

I would say if you find yourself in a situation where your "communication" isn't taken as a serious piece of your cancer management remind your onc of this study...have the study especially the conclusion bookmarked or printed out to share.

I joined GRACE as a caregiver for my husband who had a Pancoast tumor, NSCLC stage III in 2009. He had curative chemo/rads then it was believed he had a recurrence in the spine/oligometastasis that was radiated. He's 10 years out from treatment.

Forums

Our Targeted Therapies Forum was Saturday 7/16/2022. The forum was/is packed full of excellent, understandable, and useful information from our faculty of lung cancer specialists and Terri Conneran Founder of KRAS Kickers, lung cancer survivor, and patient advocate. Terri added a very important dimension to the day (she's one of us, a layperson who has a most personal stake in cancer treatment and patient advocacy).
