About LuCE

Lung Cancer Europe (LuCE) is the voice of people living with lung cancer and their families with lung cancer at European level. LuCE provides a European platform for lung cancer patient advocacy associations and networks and supports the establishment of national lung cancer patient groups in those European countries where such groups do not yet exist.

Our mission

LuCE is the voice of Europeans impacted by or at risk of lung cancer.

We collaborate with stakeholders to destigmatise the disease and ensure that  everyone  achieves the best possible outcomes.

We empower members to ensure strong and effective lung cancer patient advocacy across Europe.
