Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation are proud to host lung cancer information days across the UK, offering support and information to people affected by lung cancer.
These days give patients and their families the opportunity to hear from lung cancer professionals such as oncologists, thoracic surgeons and lung cancer nurses. You will also have the chance to ask questions as well as share your experiences with other lung cancer patients and carers.
Some of the speakers on the day will be lung Cancer Nurse Specialist Vicki Anderson, thoracic surgeon Mr Sasha Stamenkovic and oncolgosit Dr Alistair Greystoke, with a patient also sharing their experience of lung cancer.
"Lung cancer information days offer more time for people to get much more information from not just one specialist but from numerous specialists that may be involved in their care."
Martin Chamberlain, Consultant thoracic surgeon
"It's very helpful meeting other people who are suffering from a similar disease but possibly being treated differently, how they manage and what things they find help them enjoy life. The opportunity to share is very important. We don't talk about lung cancer enough."
Peter, living with lung cancer
