Summary

Many survivors of lung cancer (up to 80%) have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a disease characterized by breathlessness and fatigue. A 3-month intervention targeting multiple behaviors (stress management and sedentary behavior will be tested with survivors of localized lung cancer and their family members or close friends (dyads). This study will test the feasibility of the intervention using a 3-month, single arm, proof-of-concept study.
