CANCER'S MARGINS INTERVIEWS ASK:

SHARE YOUR STORY OF CANCER KNOWLEDGE, HEALTH AND CARE
During a 90 minute interview, Cancer's Margins would like to hear about your experiences of breast or gynecologic cancer health and care generally, and specifically, how you have located, shared, and/or contributed to knowledge about cancer health and care. Interviews for the Cancer's Margins project are being carried out in metropolitan areas of Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax.  Additional locations will be announced soon for interviews in rural and northern areas of British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. Please send them an email if you'd like to participate and they'll get back to you. Share your story of cancer knowledge, health and care.

If you:

Cancer's Margins is also interviewing folks from your personal cancer health and treatment support network. They intend the project's findings to contribute to the knowledge and resources available to LGBQT people and members of their varied communities and networks, as well as to LGBQ Women's & Trans Health Advocates, and Cancer Health Advocates to build capacity for culturally relevant and appropriate cancer health and care.

Cancer's Margins is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
