I hope everyone will take a couple minutes and help Dr Donovan with the survey. It is confidential and will give much needed feedback about what can be fixed regarding our treatment and after care. This is very important to help future oral cancer patients! Lets all pitch in and show them how supportive OCF members can be.

Please help!!!!

Hey Hey Caregivers. Here is your chance to document what works and what didn't. My wife just took this survey. It brought back lots of memories of times better forgotten but it's important to get academic credentials of the existential tribulations caregivers endure. Plus Dr. Kris has a great sense of humor and my personal endorsement. So take the survey
oh; WARNING; Take a minute to write out the definitions of the choices before taking the multiple choices since they make sense but not quite common parlance. My wife winged it with my cynical translation of Low Need as: Concerned/ difficult, I needed Help but never got it so did it Myself.
Because Satisfied did not quite get it
