This is an extremely important survey for young women, please consider completing it. It is being conducted by Samantha Yee of Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, Ontario.
Every year, approximately 85,000 Canadian women are diagnosed with cancer; of these, over 4,000 women are between the reproductive age range of 20 and 39. Fertility and motherhood are important quality of life issues for many young women with a history of cancer. However, very limited data are available to document how fertility matters are addressed when young women receive cancer care in Canada. This study aims to gather data on this under-researched topic with the goal of informing better practice in cancer care.
Female cancer survivors are needed to complete an anonymous web-based survey on fertility matters related to cancer care. The survey will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Eligible participants are: 1) female cancer survivor; 2) received a cancer diagnosis after 2000; 3) between the age of 18 and 39 when diagnosed with cancer; 4) received cancer treatment in Canada; and 5) have completed cancer treatment.
