A research team, which includes members from Vanderbilt University and University of Louisville, is exploring the attitudes of heart health, stress level and lifestyle factors in cancer patients prior to their diagnosis, during treatment and now as a cancer survivor. Your input will help influence how healthcare providers address the unmet needs in cancer patients as they transition to survivorship.

If you are a cancer survivor and have five minutes – please share your opinion by taking the following brief survey. All responses from a short survey will be collected in anonymous fashion.

Hopefully, the researchers will share their results with us when they are available!

That was too easy. It raised lots of questions for me. My BP was always perfect, even in high stress periods and even though I smoked. About a year post treatment we realized my new normal pulse is 113 and my BP skyrocketed with light stress and activity (Grocery shopping once sent me to 200/98 or close - I know the top # was 200)
I look forward to seeing what this boils down to.
Thanks,
Mary

The above survey is not valid as not every cancer patient has undergone chemotherapy or radiation. There are other treatments that produce side effects.
