Summer Research Project: Knowing your cancer inside and out!

We are excited to begin a two week journey with you as we share our Summer Research Project Proposal with you and your family. After being diagnosed with cancer, you are flooded with information and even more questions. This can create even more stress during a chaotic time.
That is why we would like to invite you to embark on our Teen with a Dream Summer Research Project!

What is this project?
Over the course of two weeks we will post certain aspects of research that you should focus on. Each section of this project is fairly broad and leaves room for flexibility and the opportunity to take it where you want. At the end of this two week duration you will have abundant information and fundamental research on the following topics:

  1. YOUR particular cancer, how it works, what it looks like on this inside
  2. Type of Treatment
  3. Side Effects
  4. Emotional Aspects
  5. Inspirational Figures 
  6. Your desired communication and discussion plan about cancer
Each one of these sections will have subtopics that we will share with you through out this project.

What will the end result of this project look like?
Although this is primarily up to you we would suggest to record and compile all of your research and put have a hard copy for you and your family. This will be discussed more closed to the end of this project.

Why would this project be beneficial for me?
By researching, evaluating and coping with your particular type of cancer will empower you with knowledge and provide you with the ability to discuss it openly and factually with your loved ones.
