Lung Cancer – which discussion group can I use with as many users as this
I am on this forum for 16 years! Thanks to this forum I found the best oncologist I could dream of (Dr. O’Day). Now with suspected to have lung cancer. Can anyone refer me to such a discussion group with many daily posts and quick responses from patients and caregivers.
It’s not as good as this one (I think this forum is pretty rare) but the inspire.com lung cancer group is ok. There seem to be a lot of members, but they’re scattered all over the board, so it takes a little hunting to find what you’re looking for. That said, I’ve learned a lot there and I’ve never found them hurtful or easily offended.
So sorry you’re dealing with LC as well as Mel. You’re right the Rock Star (O’Day) is the best. I’ll see him tomorrow.
