Have you been on Vectibix?

Postby Phuong » Mon Nov 04, 2019 9:03 pm

If you have been on Vectibix and are interested in supporting research, you may qualify to participate in this study. They are looking for colorectal cancer patients to take part and share their story. They are paying $85.00 for a 20 minute online survey.

Just want to let people know that I filled out their questionnaire to see if I fit their criteria and was accepted. I just finished the actual survey. It took about 15 minutes and was very easy to do.

Thanks guys. If anyone else does this survey, please let me know either by PM or by posting here. There is a possibility that someone related to the survey will make a donation to The Colon Club to thank us for helping to find participants.
