The study shows that, in the short term, mothers to children who have been diagnosed with cancer are more affected in terms of a lower income compared to fathers. However, in the long run, this negative effect disappears for mothers but not for fathers.

The paper is one of five papers that have been chosen for a special issue of International Journal of Cancer. The issue will be distributed to key opinion leaders and doctors in Portugal.

We are happy that our research is being spread around the world!
