Living with Hope

Welcome to the Living with Hope Research Program website. This site contains information about the research studies lead by Dr. Wendy Duggleby (Principal Investigator) on hope in cancer patients, people with dementia, and their caregivers. The title "Living with Hope" came from the first study that was completed in 2003. Terminally ill cancer patients described the importance of living with hope at the end of life. Dr. Duggleby is based at the University of Alberta, and her research teams comprise individuals from across Canada.
