The ABCs

The ABCs of Lung Cancer is a practical, easy-to-read guide for lung cancer patients and the people who care for and about them. Written by a longtime lung cancer survivor and her daughter, the authors provide useful information for others on a lung cancer journey. The 2nd Ed. features personal stories of patients and advocates and the lessons they learned.

About LiveLung

Since 2010, LiveLung has been on a mission to advance lung cancer education, early detection and compassion for people impacted by lung cancer. We do this by hosting a network of monthly community lung cancer patient groups. We also provide gift bags to dozens of cancer centers where nurse navigators give them to newly diagnosed lung cancer patients. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that believes we are here to serve the lung cancer community, not the other way around. We understand the financial toxicity that comes with a lung cancer diagnosis. While we gratefully accept donations, we do not solicit donations at our group meetings nor harass patients for donations.

We are a 501c3 organization working for cancer awareness and raising funds for cancer patients.

Live Lung

A Network of Educational Lung Cancer Patient Groups

LiveLung hosts monthly educational patient groups for lung cancer patients and caregivers. In person meetings are held in three locations in North Carolina: High Point, Charlotte, and Wilmington. National Virtual and Small Cell Lung Cancer meetings are held via Zoom. Meetings for those with the KRAS, BRAF, or RET mutations can also join in following biomarker-specific meetings: KRAS Kickers, BRAF Bombers, and RET.

LiveLung also provides Hope Totes to lung cancer patients through cancer centers in the communities served and to those attending the virtual LiveLung meetings.


Saving Lives

Early detection saves lives! We have scientific evidence proving that lung cancer can be cured if detected early. As a non-profit organization, we are dedicated to promoting early detection practice and spread awareness.

This is a place where people can share their experiences and find a sense of community. We need your contribution and support. Join us on our mission to fight lung cancer.

Get in touch with us if you need more information regarding our initiatives and services.

Dusty Donaldson was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2005, at the age of 51. She underwent surgery to remove two lobes from her right lung, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. She completed treatment within six months of her diagnosis and has been out of treatment since March 2006.
