Main question this project tries to answer
How does a family’s communication and decisions around cancer treatment affect their long-term socioeconomic outcomes?
How a patient’s family discusses serious illnesses like cancer can have a profound impact on patients’ marriages, socialization, and how they adjust to being ill. Considering cancers like hematological cancers which are treatable but not necessarily curable, which affect many young people, it’s important to understand how intra-family communication affects those outcomes.
