03 - Lung Cancer Stigma: The things people say

March 12, 2020

Lung cancer brings with it an incredible set of challenges, including one that’s almost unique to lung cancer patients: THE STIGMA. Patients with lung cancer who never smoked are asked immediately about their smoking history by doctors, friends, even complete strangers. Jill Feldman has fought against the lung cancer stigma for years – she teams up with manners and civility expert, Steven Petrow, to talk about ways to handle the things people say when you tell them you have lung cancer. Plus, lung cancer researcher Dr. Alice Berger sheds new light on lung cancer in women, particularly young non-smokers.

Guests

Jill Feldman, Lung cancer patient/advocate

Steven Petrow, Manners and civility expert and journalist
