Videos about people with ALK+ NSCLC


We know that hearing from other people who are going through similar experiences to you can be helpful. So we’ve teamed up with people who have been diagnosed with ALK+ NSCLC to develop a video series about their experiences.


Anne Marie, Toronto, Canada, diagnosed in 2009

Anne Marie passed away in October 2021.
Since her diagnosis in 2009, Anne Marie was a dedicated advocate for those living with lung cancer, and for young adults with cancer.

Many have found inspiration in Anne Marie’s story, and her input to the Younity patient support programme has undoubtedly impacted the lives of countless individuals living with lung cancer. We are extremely grateful to Anne Marie for her contributions to this programme and to the lung cancer community more widely.
