Abstract

A descriptive correlational research design was used in the study. Forty (40) respondents from Jose Tantiansu Cancer Institute at De La Salle Medical Center were chosen using purposive sampling. They have a family member with female reproductive tract cancer and their demographic profile includes age, sex, educational attainment, religious affiliation and employment status. Two (2) sets of questionnaires (social support and level of coping) were adapted and modified by the researchers from the study of Krause and Markides (Saz, 2000) and Bocalan (2002)[ZD1] . Data was analyzed through mean, percentage, t-test of independent means, F-test and Pearson’s r. The study concluded that, 1) Most of the respondents are adults, female, college graduate, Catholic, and employed; 2) The respondents are satisfied with the level of social support that they give to the family member with female reproductive tract cancer; 3) The level of coping of family members of clients with female reproductive tract cancer is good; 4) Age, gender, educational attainment, religious affiliation, and employment status do not affect the level of social support of family members of clients with female reproductive tract cancer; 5) The level of coping of family members of clients with female reproductive tract cancer did not vary according to age, sex, educational attainment, religious affiliation, and employment status; 6) There is no significant relationship that existed between level of social support and the level of coping of the family members of clients with female reproductive tract cancer.
