What is the purpose of this study?

  • We are studying if diet, exercise, or other lifestyle habits may slow cancer progression and improve survival in individuals with cancer.
     
  • It is estimated that 20-30% of cancer deaths may be prevented through not smoking, avoiding excessive alcohol intake, maintaining a healthy body weight, and obtaining better quality nutrition and regular exercise. However, many of the studies supporting this statement have been conducted in individuals before they developed cancer.
     
  • Data are limited on studying the role of lifestyle after diagnosis of cancer.
     
  • Participants will be asked to complete surveys on lifestyle behaviors such as diet, exercise, sleep quality, cancer diagnosis and management, other health conditions, and quality of life.
