I wrote them. It's horrible. It doesn't even ask about biomarkers or PD-1/PDL-1, which will drastically change results.

So glad this is being discussed. The bell triggers an emotional breakdown for me since being diagnosed with stage IV. I get to finish when I die, and ringing the bell reminds me. Hate that ritual.

I call BS to the statement that combining gefinitib with chemo versus gefinitib alone meant "no differences in quality of life." I appreciate longer OS, but statements like that throw the entire study into doubt IMO.

Important work because lung cancer is the only disease that uses prophylactic whole brain radiation, because of the frequency of brain mets. We need to understand better to improve the approach

One of my biggest pet peeves: alkalinization to fight cancer! You CAN'T make yourself alkaline and if you could, you'd die.

Caroline McCoach from talks about the complex biology of RAS pathway & challenges of targeting/blocking the signal pathway. BUT discusses current, multiple & promising strategies in development that can change the treatment landscape

Agree Sandip - our lung cancer community are amazing. The patient driven research that is happening is amazing. Imagine what funding parity could achieve in outcomes for people impacted by lung cancer

NICE has decided against approving a combination of immunotherapy and chemotherapy to treat some adults with small cell lung cancer. Our chief executive, Paula Chadwick, described the ruling as “as a deeply disappointing decision”.

Testament to lung cancer community and especially patients and advocates that we have been able to accomplish such a drastic improvement in the most lethal cancer (lung) with extremely limited resources. Imagine how much more we could do with funding parity

Physicians need a more efficient way to find clinical trials at other institutions for which their patient is eligible. Right now, it's mostly up to the patients to find a trial. How can we judge what treatment has the best chance of working?

lurking tonight on the west coast. Lack of local support groups. So glad we have a variety of online support.

...but with all the 100s of trials, it's often tough to find one for which you qualify AND gives you the best chance at effective treatment. Needs a better interface, and patients need oncologist's help sorting through options.

I personally am not looking forward to Medicare. It will cost me tons more for TKI, when currently paying only $5 a month. Even without pharma assist, I would pay $40/mth.

T3 here I would inquire with local hospital. You might have to ask multiple times. I'm still finding out things and it's been almost 5 years.

My financial hardship has nothing to do with insurance. It has to do with getting to lung cancer specialists. Medicare would cost me more $$, because cost for drugs is higher for government and other costs are reasonable.

T2 I have discovered recently that more and more docs are buying into virtual visits over internet. This is huge advantage.

T1 Coordinate better specialists' clinic days. Related specialists often have different clinic days spreading out treatment time and increasing time and expense for patient and family.

T1 specialists can remove financial toxicity. Is it possible to have all appointments in one day, avoiding hotel, can hospital make available lower cost alternatives. I have literally spent thousands of dollars in Boston just since September.
