Most cancer survivors and caregivers believed participating in our studies was beneficial to them.

Survivors have said:

“I enjoyed talking to ‘coach’. I liked that it was very flexible and manageable. I would recommend the study to somebody else.”

“It just made me think about what things to ask my doctor. Good tools that I learned and still use. Enjoyed to talk to someone every week, it was very helpful to ‘talk through it’.”

“Very worthwhile, very fantastic study- provides a lot of knowledge, helpful resource to those very ill.”

Caregivers have said:

“The book was very informative for both ‘Maria’ and I and I feel that it should be given to all patients.”

“It was great for both people to aid them because it’s concise and well thought out and easy to use.”

“I think it worked out awesome, you guys were able to work around my schedule.”
