To achieve our mission
Of advancing lung cancer education, early detection and compassion for people impacted by lung cancer, LiveLung provides Hope Totes to dozens of cancer centers where nurse navigators distribute them to newly diagnosed lung cancer patients. Hope Totes are gift bags filled with thoughtful, practical items to help patients on their treatment journey. These gifts are one way we demonstrate compassion for the lung cancer community. Hope Totes help strengthen relationships between providers and our organization. Also, as many nurses have shared, the simple act of gifting a Hope Tote to their patients, strengthens the bond between nurse and patient.
In addition to the many helpful items such as a notebook, pocket calendar, “The ABCs of Lung Cancer for Patients and Advocates,” book, and more, Hope Totes include a postcard with contact information and details about a community meeting. So, our Hope Totes are also an outreach tool to connect patients with others in their community. We provide Hope Totes to communities where we host monthly educational patient group meetings.
We are also now making it possible for individuals to sponsor a Hope Tote for us to give to cancer centers or send to a patient.
