My name is Michael and I am a researcher at the University of Sydney looking for participants to take part in an online research study. The research is interested in the psychological wellbeing of breast cancer survivors and their experiences with cancer. It is an online study that should take no more than 45 minutes to 1 hr and does not need to be completed in one sitting. It will involve writing about your experience with cancer and answering some questions about yourself. 

We are looking for breast cancer survivors who have completed primary treatment for early (e.g. non-metastatic disease) breast cancer at least 1 year ago.

If you fit this criterion and are interested, please follow the link at: https://sydney.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5teQq4OuepqifOt

Additionally, participants who complete the survey will be entered into a draw to win one of two $50 USD Amazon gift cards (deadline is 15/11/2020). 

For additional information about the study please follow the link or contact the provided email address.
