LUNGevity also supports the largest national grassroots lung cancer network, as well as the largest online support community for those affected by lung cancer.Seventy K’s mission is to change cancer care by educating patients, families, and their healthcare providers about age-appropriate treatment and the unique needs of the adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patient.
