Involving ROS1-Positive Cancer Patients in ROS1 Research

Hey ROS1ers: This is an IMPORTANT REQUEST!

We all want to find a CURE for our disease, right?

To do this, we need to know how many patients are willing and able to participate in research for cancer driven by ROS1 mutations. The results will hopefully motivate more patients to join us, generate more interest in collaborative ROS1 research, and attract more funding to ROS1 research.

PLEASE COMPLETE THIS BRIEF 10-QUESTION POLL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Just click on the link below to get started! It only takes about 5 minutes. Results of the poll will be posted on the ROS1cancer website, and the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF) ROS1 website.

SurveyMonkey Poll: Patient Interest in ROS1 Cancer Research

AND …

If you haven’t already, please complete the ROS1 patient survey on the ALCF ROS1 website. We need more responses–COMPLETE responses (all questions answered)–to have statistically valid data. It’s a long survey (might require an hour), but the length is necessary to accomplish its goals. The survey examines ROS1 patients’ diagnosis and treatment journey, family cancer history, patient exposure to toxic environments and materials, and other factors that might have contributed to the development of ROS1 cancer. A poster about the survey was presented at the IASLC Chicago Multidisciplinary Symposium In Thoracic Oncology in September 2016. The preliminary results of the survey will be presented at the IASLC World Conference on Lung Cancer in Vienna in early December 2016.
