This report is an English translation of a summary of the findings from a study of living conditions among people with cancer (Fafo-report 2009:06). There have been four main research questions:

    How does having cancer affect the employment and job situation?
    How is their financial situation affected?
    What sort of support and follow-up do people with cancer get from
    their private network and from the treatment and support system?
    How is a child’s financial and material situation affected in the event
    that a parent gets cancer?

The analyses are based on qualitative interviews, a questionnaire designed specifically for cancer survivors and register data. The study was conducted by three Norwegian research institutions; Vestfold University College, Telemarksforskning and Fafo Institute for Labour and Social Research; and was commissioned by The Norwegian Cancer Society.
