Terri Byrne shares the struggles she has faced living in a region in Australia with limited access to medical treatments and support, her mental health, and what helps her cope. We are also joined by Nicole Parkinson from Lung Foundation Australia, who talked with us about common struggles for people living with lung cancer and what people can do to help them cope. This episode is part of a 4-part miniseries talking about lung cancer treatment; side effects; struggles and mental health; and relationships and support networks. We also talk about support resources that are available to people living with lung cancer. This episode was created using excerpts from our interviews with Terri Byrne and Lung Foundation Support Nurse Nicole Parkinson.
