The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (BJALCF) is proud to partner with Smart Patients, an online community for patients and caregivers affected by lung cancer and other kinds of cancer. The online support of the Smart Patients community complements the programs of BJALCF, which include monthly in-person support group sessions (“The Living Room”) and a patient education handbook (“Navigating Lung Cancer, 360 Degrees of Hope”).

Smart Patients was designed to extend the reach of these kinds of resources to an even broader group of cancer patients who can learn from each other about treatments, the latest science, and how it all fits into the context of their experience.
