Life after cancer treatment can be challenging. During treatment, we focus so much on our body that we can sometimes overlook our thoughts and emotions. Researchers at the University of Virginia are conducting a study that evaluates a phone app-based program that provides women cancer survivors skills for coping with distress and promoting mental health.The results of this study will help us to understand how we can use mobile technology to support future women's cancer survivors.

We are looking for 20-30 women cancer survivors who have completed their active cancer treatment (within the last 10 years), are fluent in English, and that own a smartphone with a plan that allows for text messaging and Internet access. In this 6-week study, you will have access to an app, receive light phone coaching to orient you to using the app, and complete a short online survey to tell us what you liked and didn't like about the app. Individuals that complete all aspects of the study are eligible to receive a $50 gift card. If interested, please contact us via email at iCanThrive@virginia.edu or phone (434-962-1299). UVA IRB-HSR #20648 Principal Investigator: Philip Chow, Ph.D.
