Kylie Johnston Lung Cancer Network
The Kylie Johnston Lung Cancer Network (KJLCN) aims to empower lung cancer patients, their families and carers with reliable and up to date information, with support and advocacy, no matter who they are and where they live.
The KJLCN works to:-
We develop and distribute free, reliable and up to date information about lung cancer specifically designed to meet the needs of lung cancer patients and their families. We work to raise the profile of Lung Cancer in the community and promote lung health as a priority for all Australians.
We encourage patients and their families to connect with one another through telephone and face to face support groups, our on line forum, Lungevity and other web-based technologies so that they might share experiences and offer one another hope, inspiration and understanding – from anywhere in Australia.
We encourage patients and their families to be proactive in their ongoing treatment and care and establish strong relationships with their GP and a specialist nurse so that they can access the best multi disciplinary care to get the right treatment at the right time.
We work in partnership with other cancer organisations and health organisations to develop or update patient resources, guidelines for health care professional and to educate the community on the possible symptoms of lung cancer so that early detection will take place.
We encourage people to participate in fundraising activities and donate to KJLCN lung cancer fundraising initiatives.
