Looking for young Breast Cancer survivors for support study

Dr. Joanne Stephen at the British Columbia Cancer Agency is looking for participants for a study comparing online professional-led support groups and groups that are peer-controlled.

Participants must be 46 or younger, within three years of their last treatment date, and able to read and write English.

The study started in September 2010 and will conclude in December 2012.

“[This study] will help us determine if one or both of the study groups effectively improve quality of life, reduce distress, or enhance self-efficacy and life satisfaction for young breast cancer survivors,” said the British Columbia Cancer Agency in a press release.
