University researchers want to hear what it’s like to live with cancer


Chad Hammond of the Cancer and Young Adult Research Team at the University of Saskatchewan wanted to pass on the following message about a research study they are conducting on young adults in Canada. Have a look!  

The Cancer and Young Adulthood Research Team is a group of social researchers at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. We would like to learn what living with cancer is like for young adults in Canada.

This research will help us to understand the specific challenges facing young adults with cancer so that the quality of care may be improved.

We are currently recruiting people in Canada who are between the ages of 18 and 45, were diagnosed within or close to that age group, and  wish to talk with us about life with cancer.

You can participate in this important study in one or both of the following ways:

  1. A 90-minute, one-on-one conversation with one of our researchers. If you are living in and around the south Saskatchewan area, we may be able to meet in person. Otherwise, this conversation will likely be conducted over the telephone.
  2. A short personal account about your experiences with cancer in whatever format and style you wish.


Our research is supported by a national Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) grant.

If you are interested in participating, or would like more information about the study, please feel free to contact us through the information below. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
