Research Participation Opportunity
The purpose of this research study is to examine how those diagnosed with cancer tell family members. The focus of this study is to understand the thought process that occurs when contemplating disclosure to others. Your participation in the study will contribute to a better understanding of how individuals with cancer make decisions about communicating the information to family and friends. Your participation is completely voluntary.
You are eligible to participate if:
· You are at least 18 years old
· You have been diagnosed with cancer at some point and told an immediate family member (NOT your spouse) about it
Approximately 300 people will participate in this study. If you choose to participate, you will be asked to answer questions about your thoughts and experiences disclosing your diagnosis to your family in an online survey which will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.
