LUNGevity’s unique International Lung Cancer Survivorship Conference is the largest gathering of lung cancer survivors in the world. It brings together lung cancer patients in all stages of the disease and diagnosis with scientific experts, nutritionists, clinicians, healthcare providers, and fellow survivors to learn how to live well with lung cancer.

Registration for the conference is $75; limited financial assistance for travel expenses is available. All attendees have the opportunity to fundraise for LUNGevity through the Survivor Challenge to help cover their travel and hotel expenses.
