This is an update from my previous posting. The company had recruited several people who have volunteered to help, but some people who volunteered earlier and had been told they were NOT eligible, may now be OK to take part because the remit has been widened. I am sorry about this complication!
So the company is offering £150 to patients to take part in the project, and a donation will also be made to the OPA.
The criteria are now:
Patients who are CURRENTLY suffering from gastric or gastroesophageal cancer (i.e. cancer not being in remission) and who have previous received chemotherapy, but the cancer no longer needs to be metastatic or unresectable.
With this modified patient profile, they hope to find 10 respondents for these interviews.
Patients who had been informed previously that they would not be eligible to participate because their cancer is neither metastatic nor unresectable would now be eligible and are re-invited to complete the online profile questionnaire:
