NL researcher looking for young survivor mothers for a research study
Judith Strickland is a PhD Nursing student and researcher who is looking for participants for her current research study.
“I am looking to know, what are the experiences of young mothers recently diagnosed with cancer of the breast or cervix. Many young women are mothers and there needs to be more emphasis placed on young women and mothers diagnosed with cancer (as I think you would agree),” she said in an email.
Right now, she is looking for participants on the island portion of Newfoundland and Labrador only as she will be traveling for in-person interviews.
Participants must be:
- Between the ages of 20- and 50-years-old;
- Diagnosed with cancer in the last two years;
- A mother prior to their diagnosis of cancer of the breast or cervix; and,
- Is mother to at least child not older than 17 years of age.
If you are interested in particpating, please contact her at (709) 637-5000 before the end of February 2012.
