We need your help developing a parenting program for Latina mothers with advanced cancer.

An advanced cancer diagnosis can affect everyone in the family, including the children. Conexiones is a program designed to help diagnosed Latina mothers with early stage cancer and their children to cope with cancer. Researchers at NMSU would like to improve Conexiones so that it may also help Latina mothers with advanced cancer and their children to cope with cancer.

What is Evaluating the Acceptability of Conexiones for Latina Mothers with Advanced Cancer?

A study in which Latina mothers diagnosed with advanced cancer complete the Conexiones education sessions and evaluate:

  • What they liked or disliked about the sessions
  • Whether Conexiones is relevant to their experience with advanced cancer
  • What parts of the sessions were difficult for them to complete
  • What additional information or changes they would like

About the study:

  • Free to participants
  • Available in English and Spanish
  • Complete a brief survey
  • Participate in a Conexiones Education Session and provide feedback
  • Location: The study is done by Zoom or by telephone so that you can participate in the comfort of your own home

If you participate, you will receive:

  • $25 gift card for each session
  • Education materials
  • Resource booklet

You may participate in this study if:

  • You are a Latina or Hispanic woman
  • You received an advanced cancer diagnosis
  • You have a child between the ages of 5-17
  • You live in New Mexico or Texas
