This is a prospective study that will conduct a series of focus groups with non-Hispanic Black and Hispanic childhood cancer survivors to obtain their input on culturally adapting a mobile CBT program for chronic pain and tDCS procedures. Once this adaptation process is completed, the investigators will conduct a feasibility trial with non-Hispanic Black, Hispanic and non-Hispanic White childhood cancer survivors of bone sarcoma with chronic pain. The feasibility study will assign eligible participants to either culturally adapted mobile CBT + active tDCS to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex or culturally adapted mobile CBT + sham tDCS. We anticipate approximately 60 participants for the focus groups and approximately 30 participants for the feasibility study for a total of about 90 participants.
