Join the Thriving Together Study


Support networks are important and can help people navigate health care before and after cancer in many different ways.



This study is open to transgender and gender diverse cancer survivors and members of their support network. Participants must be at least 18 years old.


What will happen?

  • Cancer survivors can participate by completing one videoconference or telephone interview with us (60-90 minutes).
  • We will also ask if you are willing to nominate 1-2 people in your support network who may be interested in being interviewed.
  • Participants will receive a $30 eGift card after the interview.


The Thriving Together study...

  • Focuses on experiences with cancer care, gender affirming care, and care related to reproductive and sexual health.
  • Highlights the voices and stories of transgender and gender diverse cancer survivors and their support networks to inform development of strategies to improve support and health equity. We will share findings through publications and community dissemination.
