Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Web-Based Intervention
UMFollowUp - web-based internet resource for information about their diagnostic histories, recommendations for follow-up care, and tips to enhance their treatment, psychosocial and physical well-being.
Behavioral: UMFollowUp
Web-based internet resource for self-reported treatment summaries and psychosocial and physical well-being.
Active Comparator: Standard of Care
Patients will receive information regarding their diagnosis, treatments, and ongoing health needs from their provider, but will not be provided access to the website.
Other: Standard of Care
Patients will receive information regarding their diagnosis, treatments, and ongoing health needs from their provider, but will not be provided access to the website.

Detailed Description:

Individuals randomly assigned to the control group will receive standard of care for the duration of their participation. This means they will continue to receive information regarding their diagnosis, treatments and ongoing health needs from their provider (no access to website).

Individuals randomly assigned to the treatment group will receive access to UMFollowUp, a secure, HIPAA-compliant website.

All participants will be asked to complete paper-and-pencil surveys at baseline and 9 months later to determine the impact of the web-based intervention.
