iCanADAPT is the trial of an online treatment program for anxiety and depression in early stage cancer or cancer survivors. We know that every person has unique experiences while dealing with a cancer diagnosis, getting on with life afterwards, and living with cancer treatments, and we want to help.
To that end, we are currently searching for trial participants who are currently going through cancer treatment, and those who have finished treatment for early-stage cancer, even if their treatment was many years ago.
