Inviting cancer patients/survivors and their family members to fill out a survey


My name is Erica Lam, a student in the Department of Psychology at the University of Calgary. I am conducting a survey study to investigate the use of psychosocial services by Chinese-speaking individuals during their cancer journeys.

Whom are we inviting to fill out the 8- to 10-minute survey: 

  1. You are a cancer patient/survivor and your mother tongue is a Chinese language.
  2. You are the spouse, parent, sibling, or child of a cancer patient/survivor whose mother tongue is Chinese. Your mother language does not have to be Chinese.

All participants must be 18 years of age and above.

Link to the survey:

Attached you will find a flyer about the study (see 4CStudy) and the ethics certificate (see Doc1).

I am hoping that your organization could share the recruitment advertisement with your members via email or social media or by forwarding this email. Your help would be much appreciated. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Erica Lam directly at or via WeChat at eltyma18. Thank you for your attention.  

Yours sincerely,

Erica Lam
