For Immediate Release

The University of Hawai╩╗i at Hilo is seeking long-term cancer survivors on the Big Island for a research study on the quality of life.

The study, conducted by Dr. Cheryl Ramos, associate professor of psychology at UH Hilo, who is a long-term cancer survivor, will examine cultural factors, stressors, coping resources and health conditions that may relate to the quality of life for long-term cancer survivors.

Ramos is seeking 200 long-term cancer survivors from the Big Island to complete a series of questionnaires. Participants will receive a $10 KTA gift certificate as a ÔÇťthank youÔÇŁ for taking part in the project. If you have survived cancer for five years or longer, are 18 years of age or older, and live on the Big Island, you may be eligible to participate in this study.

For more information or to participate, contact Ramos at 936-1323 or
