Participants Sought For Cancer Study

Published 3:46 pm Tuesday, October 16, 2012

VCU Massey Cancer Center is conducting a research study to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors in this area. Called the Day and Night Study, it examines how lifestyle habits affect cancer survivorship. Community participants are needed for the study.

Both participants without cancer as well as those who have had cancer of the breast, lung, colorectal or prostate are needed. The study involves an interview and a small blood sample.

Participating in this research may help doctors individualize cancer treatments and inform cancer survivors about lifestyle choices that can improve their quality of life. In appreciation, each participant will receive $80.
