We Are Stronger Together

Welcome to the website of ALK Positive Lung Cancer (UK) - a registered charity established by patients and their families and friends. Our purposes are to provide support and advocacy and to improve the overall survival and quality of life of ALK-positive lung cancer patients across the United Kingdom.
