Monday, November 5, 2018 — Today, Lung Cancer Alliance presented the 2018 Lung Cancer Support Group Facilitator Award to Catherine Paykin, LCSW-R, who runs a support group at New York University Perlmutter Cancer Center. The Lung Cancer Support Group Facilitator Award recognizes the uncommon dedication of a support group facilitator. Members from Catherine’s support group nominated her for the award.

Miranda Goff, Lung Cancer Alliance, was in New York City to present the award to Catherine.

We are incredibly grateful for all lung cancer support group facilitators for continuing to offer resources and support to those touched by lung cancer on a local level.
