Blood Cancer In America: What's That?
A blood cancer diagnosis is a shock, but what can make it more difficult is navigating the information and research available for patients and their loved ones. Many people quickly jump online to research the ins and outs of blood cancer but have trouble finding reliable information. Even more difficult can be finding someone who has actually been through blood cancer to connect with and share experiences.
How can a survey help?
The Blood Cancer In America survey is an annual survey on Blood-Cancer.com that seeks to close some of these gaps. The survey covers basics like diagnosis and treatment experiences but also dives into the nitty-gritty, like the emotional impact and the seemingly small day-to-day challenges.
Each person that takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of blood cancer and can help others who are going through it feel less alone. Sharing experiences in the survey can reveal how similar each person’s journey with blood cancer is, as well as the differences that make each journey unique.
What will the survey ask me?
The survey will ask about diagnosis, symptoms, symptom management, quality of life and relationships, healthcare professional engagement, and treatment awareness and experience. We do not require your name, address, or other personal information.
Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your internet browser and return when you are able. You will resume where you left off.
How does Health Union use the In America survey data?
Survey responses help Health Union and our partners better understand the blood cancer community. All survey responses are kept confidential and reported only in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually), and will become property of Health Union, LLC.
What happens after I take the survey?
After the survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at Blood-Cancer.com takes your responses and creates an infographic filled with information about life with blood cancer. But that’s not all – over the year, we publish articles based on learnings from the survey. Each article published using responses from the survey contributes to the information available to those affected by blood cancer and helps them connect with those who have walked the same path.
One voice may seem like it will not make a difference, but each voice can change how others perceive life with blood cancer and bring comfort to someone coping with a diagnosis.
