  1. Help us understand what matters most to people with cancer! The Cancer Support Community (CSC) is looking for people to help develop a new tool to understand what matters most to people living with cancer. Please consider participating if you have ever received a cancer diagnosis, are at least 18 years old, and can read English. Participants who complete the survey will be offered the chance to enter a drawing for a $100 gift card. Five gift cards will be awarded for every 100 participants who complete the survey. If you complete the survey, you will have a chance to complete a short follow-up survey one week later and enter another drawing for a $25 gift card. To participate, please go to the following link: https://www.research.net/r/valuescsc If you want to learn more, please contact Kelly Clark at [email protected] or 267-295-3001. We hope you will consider participating in this important study!

She just needs some support and encouragement from someone with the same diagnosis. Please let me know if you are willing to offer her an ear to listen. Thank you in advance.
