Supporting the Fight Against Cancer:
A LIVESTRONG Brief
At LIVESTRONG we know that we have benefited greatly from the millions of people worldwide who have engaged with us in the fight against cancer. In a recent study, we sought to understand how engaging in the fight against cancer impacts the participants as well. In 2010 we fielded the LIVESTRONG Survey for People Affected by Cancer. Nearly 10,000 (N= 9,950) U.S. residents completed at least 75 percent of the survey items. Respondents included people who had been diagnosed with cancer as well as loved ones or caregivers of someone who had been diagnosed. This LIVESTRONG brief focuses on how respondents feel supporting the fight against cancer impacts them personally.
