Survivorship starts at diagnosis and includes living with, through and beyond cancer.
LADDER is an online Kentucky-based research study about the influence that cancer and cancer treatments have on the lives, experiences, and wellbeing of those diagnosed with cancer. We ask questions about your health, cancer experience and any emotional, mental, physical, and social issues that may affect you from the time of diagnosis. This study is open to adults over the age of 18 years, living in Kentucky, and newly diagnosed with cancer within the past 12 months. Compensation is available for participants completing the study.
