Midwest Lung Cancer Summit, hosted by A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation, is a one-day lung cancer summit planned by and for lung cancer survivors and caregivers.
Make new friends who know what it’s like to live with lung cancer. Find others who share your diagnosis and understand the emotional and physical challenges. Fill in the learning gaps on subjects you want to learn about.
Join us Saturday, November 17 at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott, located near the Mall of America, as we continue to build a community that cares, shares and nurtures one another to improve, prolong and save lives.
