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
Kathy Chauncey, PhD, RDN
