Overview
A lung cancer diagnosis and the treatments that follow can deeply impact the emotional, social, psychological, spiritual, and practical health and well-being of an individual and their family*. Although it may feel like it at times, you do not have to carry this burden alone.

Purpose
The Airways of Hope program provides one on one virtual support from a Registered Social Worker.  They can provide help with:
  • Emotional concerns, like coping with your feelings about your illness and talking with family, friends or others. They can help you learn ways to manage the stress of living with cancer and adjust to changes brought on by cancer.
  • Bereavement support.
  • Financial concerns, like finding out about financial help, drug coverage or disability pensions.
  • Practical (day-to-day) concerns, like transportation, accommodation, advance care planning, home support and linking with support services and resources in the community.    ‚Äč
