Input needed for new campaign from chemotherapy patients!

CCSN wants you to share your story!

Are you a patient who underwent or is undergoing chemotherapy and experienced chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV)? Do you have a compelling story that you would be willing to share to help empower others?

If so, the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network is working on a public awareness campaign to let cancer patients know that there is hope regarding CINV. Cancer can be frightening enough and treatment options exist to prevent CINV, one of the most feared side effects of chemotherapy.

As part of this campaign, we will be sharing videos of your stories and experiences with chemo induced nausea and vomiting.  For example, do you think that CINV is one of the worst aspects of cancer? Did it affect your quality of life or have an impact on the time you spent with your family? Do you think this side effect is taken seriously enough? Were you offered a prevention treatment and if so, has it helped you regain control over your life?

If you are interested in participating in CCSN’s upcoming video testimonial campaign, please contact us before August 10th at and include the following information: your name, phone number and email, availability to shoot the video, and a few details about how chemo-induced nausea and vomiting affected your life. Your participation may help others avoid CINV.
