Women Anywhere in the US with A Diagnosis of Breast Cancer Needed!

It is widely known that a breast cancer diagnosis can have far reaching effects both socially and emotionally. Less well understood are the ways in which a breast cancer diagnosis impacts the well-being and quality of life of certain subgroups of women.Specifically, the research team would like to assess the health and well-being of women who have recurrent disease, metastatic disease, have been recently diagnosed, have an additional invasive cancer diagnosis, OR who are currently undergoing cancer treatment. Identifying the unique needs by asking some questions in a phone survey will help researchers be able to develop appropriate programs for these women.

If this study isn’t a right fit for you, but you know someone who might be interested in participating, please pass it on. Forwarding our information to friends and family is just as important as participating in a study.

What’s the study about?

The information gained from this research about the well-being and quality of life of women with breast cancer will be used to develop programs and services.

What’s involved?

If you choose to join this study, you will be asked to take part in a phone survey that will last approximately 45 minutes. Questions about your health, medical history, demographics, and sexual orientation will be asked. Six hundred women are needed for this study.
