    Book for children with cancer

    I am a Hodgkins Lymphoma survivor (currently going on 5 years) currently pursuing a doctorate degree in clinical psychology.

    I am doing research looking at how a book can help a child ages 5-12 who has a cancer diagnosis. If you are a parent of a child in this age bracket and are interested in helping medical professionals learn about how to better help these children, please consider being a part of my study.

    The commitment is very little on your part, and all that is asked is that you fill out a few short questionnaires and read a brief picture book to your child. You will be given a hard cover copy of this unpublished book to keep as an incentive to participate. Of course, I will ship all materials to you and assume all costs and it only takes about 30 minutes to complete the study.

    Please PM me here if you are interested and I would be happy to answer questions you might have. Thank you so much for your consideration!
