West Texas Cancer Survivors Network



Dear WTCSN Cancer Survivors and Partners,

We are sad to report that our proposal to CPRIT for a Phase 3 Continuation/Expansion was not funded. We have an opportunity to re-submit our application and we are contemplating whether to do that. However, for now, we are inactivating our Enrollment forms – online and paper. Our website (www.ttuhsc.edu/wtcsn) will remain open minus the enrollment feature. You will no longer receive newsletters, toolkits, or fact sheets, but all of these resources will continue to be available through the website.

To our Cancer Survivors Enrollees, we loved hearing your fascinating stories and we continue to celebrate your survivorship! To our WTCSN Partners, we owe you a huge debt of gratitude because we could not have achieved presence in 88 West Texas counties without your assistance! We wish you all continued success in your pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

Kathy Chauncey, PhD, RDN
Director WTCSN

    NIH Clinical Research Trials

    One of our partners, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) Workplace Overall Wellness Program (WOW), in order to educate employees about Clinical Research Participation, has posted the National Cancer Institute brochure Taking Part in Cancer Treatment Research Studies on TTUHSC WOW intranet or have made hard copies available to employees.

    TTUHSC employees are made aware of web-based information about clinical trials participation, such as NIH Clinical Research Trials and You.

    WTCSN wants our cancer survivors’ network and the public to be aware of Clinical Research Trial Participation.
