LUNGevity has launched Breathe Easier: An Emergency Response Fund to help financially support life challenges for lung cancer patients and their families during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

The Breathe Easier fund will offer financial assistance to eligible lung cancer patients and their families to satisfy their critical basic needs of food, transportation, and general household bills. Support in the amount of $500 will be provided to eligible patients and their families.

Call our Lung Cancer HELPLine (844-360-5864), a free phone service in partnership with CancerCare, to learn more and apply for support from the Breathe Easier fund. To qualify, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Patients must be in active treatment, or actively pursuing treatment, for lung cancer.
  • The patient’s household income does not exceed 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL); however, special consideration will be given to those who are recently unemployed or furloughed as a result of COVID-19.
  • Patient must be a US resident and be receiving care for lung cancer in the US.
