The meaning of cancer: implications for family finances and consequent impact on lifestyle, activities, roles and relationships

Objective: This study explores the impact that cancer-related financial hardship/worries can have on family life.

Methods: Forty patients (19 male and 21 female) and 17 carers participated in a qualitative study, which drew on certain elements of grounded theory methods. Participants were 18 years or older and were accessed through a regional cancer centre, an acute National Health Service trust, a support group and the Macmillan Benefits Helpline. Interviews were transcribed verbatim and analysed thematically with the aid of nvivo 7 (QSR International, Cambridge, MA, USA).
