Be a part of Dr. Anne Katz and Alicia Louise Merchant’s book on YAs and cancer

Are you interested in being interviewed for a new book? Dr. Anne Katz and Alicia Louise Merchant, a YA with cancer, are writing a book for and about young adults with cancer and are looking for people to share their experiences.

We are looking for young adults under the age of 40 years who have had cancer after age 18. We are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds with any type of cancer. Participants can be in treatment, post treatment, or living with advanced, recurrent, or metastatic disease.

Interviews can be conducted over the phone or by Skype, and will be recorded and transcribed. We will call you so you will not incur any costs.

Interviewees may use their own names or request a pseudonym. Your confidentiality will be protected and you have the right to share as little or as much as you are comfortable with.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact Alicia Merchant at


We are committed to interviewing a diverse and representative group of subjects. At the moment, we are lacking an adequate representation of LGBTQ young adults and male young adults with cancer, and would particularly value interviews from these groups.

Thank you so much for considering to be part of this project.

Best regards,

Alicia Louise Merchant
