Want to help research? Join a Research Study

It is simple to become involved in a research study, and it may provide you with a way you may not have considered to make a difference in the fight against all cancers.

Participation in a research study will typically involve completing a questionnaire-based survey, participating in a focus group or an interview. It will always be your choice if you want to take part. Please note that study participants do not necessarily have to have been diagnosed with cancer.
