ALK+ Lung Cancer

Don’t Let Your Diagnosis Define You

If you’ve found your way to this site, it means you, or someone you love, has been diagnosed with anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive (ALK+) lung cancer. (Your doctor may have called it ALK+ non-small cell lung cancer [NSCLC].)

We know how scary that can be. The following information can help you understand what to expect with this diagnosis, and how to continue living your life in spite of it. Here, you and your care partners will find support, resources, and information for living with ALK+ lung cancer. The diagnosis wasn’t easy to hear, but the goal is to make it easier to deal with it. This diagnosis won't define you.

Reach out to your Care Team with questions on treatments, side effects, and before making any modifications.

No matter where you are in the phases of treatment, LivingWithALK has something for you. Whether you were recently diagnosed or have been on a treatment plan, here's some information to help you along the way.
