If you are over the age of 18 and a romantic partner and the caregiver of someone who has been diagnosed with lung cancer in the past two years, please consider contributing to this important study on the quality of life of caregivers of lung cancer patients and survivors. 

 

This study consists of completing a brief online survey at 2 different time points over the course of six months (initial time point and 6 months later).  Some find the surveys helpful for reflecting on their caregiving experience, and you would be contributing to our understanding of the important but understudied topic of the challenges faced by caregivers.

 

After completing both the first and second survey, you will have the option to submit an email address to be entered into a lottery for receiving one of three $50 Amazon electronic gift cards.   The survey questions will ask you about your feelings about caregiving, your quality of life, your physical health, and the physical health of the lung cancer survivor for whom you are a caregiver.  The survey will take approximately 30 minutes at each of the two time points.

 

This research is being conducted by Trisha Raque-Bogdan, Ph.D. of the University of Denver and Amanda Ginter, Ph.D., of Towson University.

 

If you would like to participate in this research, please either go to https://udenver.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_etkPpCNDT9HwkKN

Have you previously been treated for cancer?  Are you now being treated for heart failure?

Some cancer therapies include toxins that affect the heart and can lead to heart failure. If your cancer was treated using a class of chemotherapies called anthracyclines, and you are now experiencing heart failure, you may have a medical condition called anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy (or AIC). 

If you are between the ages of 18 and 79 years of age, have been cancer free for more than two years, and have been diagnosed with AIC, you may be eligible for a clinical research study at one of our seven clinical centers in the U.S.

This study will determine the safety and effectiveness of a new investigational cell therapy to improve heart function. If you are interested in learning more about this study, please contact us (information below) or visit our website (www.cctrn.org) to find one of our clinical research centers near you.
