How does our Religious/Spiritual relationship affect Survivors
February 8, 2012 by Peggy Weng
I am completing a sociology honors thesis project on the relationship between religious and/or spiritual
coping styles and the quality of life of breast cancer patients and survivors. I am interested in whether there are
any differences in religious and/or spiritual coping strategies among women of 2 different age groups
(age = or < 50 and age > 50) and how those differences potentially contribute to differences in quality of life
after breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Breast Cancer and Quality of Life

Have you been diagnosed with breast cancer or consider yourself a breast cancer survivor?
The study I'm conducting is for my senior research thesis and is looking at the effect of yoga on the immune system of breast cancer patients. I am currently recruiting patients on a rolling basis for both the YOGA and NON-YOGA groups. I ask that patients in the yoga group participate in yoga at least two times a week. They can participate at home or at a yoga studio. If in the YOGA group, I will find FREE yoga near the patient's home. Patients in the NON-YOGA group will simply have to answer survey questions bi-weekly over the phone or via e-mail about their health and cold symptoms (approx. 5 minute survey.) Those in the yoga group will be asked the same questions. The study lasts a total of four months once the patient starts. Patients must have received chemotherapy within the last 2 years or are currently undergoing chemotherapy.
Breast Cancer Survey for occupational therapy graduate students
March 11, 2008 by Jodi Glover
Greetings fellow pink link members. My name is Jodi Glover, and I am a graduate student in the occupational therapy program at Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, PA. Myself, along with 2 classmates and a faculty advisor have been hard at work since August reviewing literature and developing a survey that explores how womens' roles and daily activities change when they are diagnosed with breast cancer. Each of the students in our research group has had an immediate relative who has survived breast cancer, and our faculty advisor is also a breast cancer survivor. It is a topic that is very close to our hearts, and one that is seen quite frequently by practicing occupational therapists.
November 30, 2007 by Alicia Danforth, Study Coordinator and Recent Survivor
I coordinate a clinical trial for people who have metastatic cancer and anxiety. We are seeking one more volunteer who can participate in two treatment sessions in Los Angeles. This study is the first of it's kind since the 1970's to work with the novel medication, psilocybin, which is one of the ingredients in "magic" mushrooms. As a recent survivor, I have become fluent in "cancerese," so please contact me if you have questions. You can learn more about the inclusion/exclusion criteria by visiting www.canceranxietystudy.org (keyword: Grob)
Women play many important roles
throughout their lives—daughter, mother, and friend—but no relationship is as
unique as the one between two sisters. Sister Study researchers hope the
sisters of women with breast cancer
can play another important role by helping discover how our environment and
genes affect our chances of developing breast cancer.
Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation
is on a mission: to eradicate breast cancer and improve the quality of women's
health through innovative research, education and advocacy. Through our research, we are working towards
an unprecedented understanding of where
breast cancer begins—in the breast ducts—and we now have the tools to get
there. The intraductal research holds the potential to expand our knowledge in
way that will truly allow us to end breast cancer. That is why it is the focus
of our research and that of the researchers we fund.
