Becoming a Phone Buddy and sharing your personal lung cancer experience can make all the difference in the life of someone faced with the disease. Currently, we have a specific need for volunteers who have been on immunotherapies or targeted medications, as well as those who have been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer.

Become a Phone Buddy

When you sign up to become a Phone Buddy, you are committing to the following:

  • Completing a questionnaire that outlines your treatment history and experiences
  • Reviewing our easy to follow training guide
  • A 60-90 minute telephone orientation with a LCA support staff member
  • Once matched, allowing for 1-3 hours a month to talk on the phone with your buddy (time commitment can vary depending on how often you and your match want to talk)

LCA promises to:

  • Connect you with people who can relate to your unique experience (same type/stage of lung cancer, etc.)
  • Provide you with a guide to help prepare you to be a Phone Buddy
  • Offer support to questions you may not know how to answer
  • Follow-up to discuss any emotional difficulties that arise
