In 2013, George was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic lung cancer. He assumed his life as he knew it was over. Then, one day, he struck up a conversation with his neighbor, Laurie, when he learned that Laurie also had lung cancer. It turned out that Laurie was living a completely opposite life from George. Laurie’s live was full of exciting plans. It was then that George realized that he did not have to completely shut down his life following his lung cancer diagnosis, and assume the worst. Yes, he had lung cancer, and he was living with it.
George’s realization and the realization of so many others have inspired a community of over 225,000 people around the globe who are embracing life with lung cancer.
LVNG With Lung Cancer is a space for people with all types of lung cancer, in all stages. From newly diagnosed, to people with loved ones who are no longer with us, everyone is invited to share and support one another.
AstraZeneca introduced LVNG With in the Philippines to activate a community of people living with lung cancer and their loved ones, to share their experiences and inspire one another. LVNG With is an initiative supported by the local medical oncology society, the Philippine Society of Medical Oncology (PSMO) and local cancer support groups.
The LVNG With community was built from the incredible stories we have received from people living with lung cancer. We are committed to providing content and resources that are both motivating and moving. We encourage the community to live a life of possibility.
LVNG With website is co-developed by AstraZeneca Philippines, AstraZeneca US and PSMO.
