Research study on Cancer-related Fatigue

I received the following message, looking for research participants:
My name is Nicole Rutkowski. I am a PhD candidate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa. My research is in psychosocial oncology, and we are beginning recruitment for a pilot group program for cancer-related fatigue. We are reaching out to organizations with individuals who may be experiencing cancer-related fatigue to help spread the word about the project as part of our implementation efforts. 
We have partnered with the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation so that the program will continue to be offered after our research study is completed. We would greatly appreciate if you can share our study with members of your organization and/or on your social media accounts.
I've attached 2 files with further information. 


  • Hello, my name is Tammy and I have been a survivor for 5 years serous carcinoma. I have tried 3 attempts of returning to work and diagnosed with cfs and fibromyalgia since then.  I sure can help anyone that is experiencing fatigue after cancer. Please reach out to me if your suffering or perhaps pushing yourself to hard I’d love to help.

    @jobo thanks for sharing this information with our community. With fatigue so common an issue that is expressed by our group whether in treatment or in recovery, I"m sure there will be a lot of interest.
