Cancer Survivors, Controls Needed
A study needs volunteers who have been diagnosed and treated for brain or breast cancer, are between the ages of 20 and 70, and were working full time for at least one year prior to diagnosis. We also need healthy volunteers who have never been diagnosed with cancer and have no chronic life-threatening illness, are between the ages of 20 and 70 and who have been working full time for at least the past year. You will be asked to complete a 1-hour questionnaire online with questions related to work and health. Participants will be compensated and receive a free Livestrong yellow wrist band.
