Dear Canadian Lung Cancer Patients,
A group of lung cancer patients is conducting this survey with a common interest in research on lung cancer.
Anxiety, fear and worry are common concerns among lung cancer patients. While mental health has been studied amongst cancer patients in general, there is little information about lung cancer. We (the Breathe Hope Research Group) are doing a pilot survey to gather some basic information that might be used to generate more interest in studying this area as well as advocacy for more support and resources for the mental health of lung cancer patients.
The survey will be open until February 6, 2023. Click the link below to complete the survey.

Thank you to the New York Islander's for hosting us, and the Bossy family for your support and dedication to honouring Mike.
