A research study is being conducted for Canadian family caregivers regarding managing their fear of cancer recurrence in a loved one.
• Do you worry about your loved one’s cancer coming back?
• Do you worry weeks before your loved one’s follow-up appointments?
• Do your worries about your loved one’s cancer coming back cause you distress or affect your daily life?

If so, you may be interested in participating in a brief online group study. This research engagement opportunity is being led and supported by the University of Ottawa, McGill University Health Centre, Cancer Chat Canada and the University Health Network Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

Who can participate? Canadian women (18 years of age or older) who:
• provide unpaid support to an adult loved one (who has recently been diagnosed with cancer, has finished their treatment and has not experienced a cancer recurrence)
• worry that their loved one’s cancer may come back
• are interested in exploring their fear of cancer recurrence
• are willing to participate in seven weekly small online group meetings with other women caregivers
