A survivorship conference for anyone impacted by lung cancer

Friday, April 27 - Sunday, April 29, 2018
Washington Marriott Georgetown, 1221 22nd Street, Washington DC 20037

Hotel information

The National HOPE Summit takes place each spring and kicks off Lung Cancer HOPE Month in May. At HOPE Summit, participants learn, collaborate, advocate, and share their stories about living with lung cancer. The summit features inspirational speakers, medical expert forums, lung cancer survivor-specific sessions (for both those in and out of active treatment), and opportunities for lung cancer survivors to connect with other survivors. Learn more about the HOPE Summit program.

All conference sessions will be geared toward those who have been diagnosed with lung cancer. The COPE Summit full-day session on Sunday will be geared toward lung cancer caregivers/care partners. Lung cancer survivors, caregivers, and medical professionals wanting to learn more about lung cancer survivorship are all welcome to register.
