Quit2Heal: A Study Assessing a Smartphone App to Help People with Cancer to Stop Smoking


Full Title

Randomized Trial of a Smartphone Application to Help Cancer Patients Stop Smoking (Quit2Heal) (Fred Hutch IRB)


People with cancer who quit smoking heal faster from their treatment and do better with cancer care than those who keep smoking. A new smartphone app has been developed to help people with cancer who smoke to stop smoking. Quit2Heal study researchers are now testing the app to see if it works. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is participating in this study.

If you have cancer and want to quit smoking on your own, you may be able to join this study. You will get:

  • Tools to cope with urges to smoke
  • A step-by-step guide to help you quit
  • Help staying motivated
  • Up to $210 for your time
  • The ability to quit on your own without having to visit a clinic. No need to travel!
