A unique research opportunity to participate in a 3 day online community – for women who have experienced a local recurrence of breast cancer OR their caregivers.
Find a Cure Panel specializes in patient research for rare and serious diseases and has some online research for people and caregivers of people with breast cancer. It's very easy to participate in. It's one 3 day confidential and anonymous online community.
The total time commitment is 60 minutes or 20 minutes per day. This community focuses on you or your loved' one's experience with the treatment of breast cancer.
If you participate in the community, FACP will donate $200 to BCO.
To qualify for this research, you or you loved one must: 1) Be under recent treatment for BC and 2) Had a local recurrence in the last 2 years (as opposed to newly diagnosed)
This is an easy way to share your experience but also LEARN from the other 30 participants. If you are interested in participating, please contact FACP at email@example.com and reference FACP/BCO
Sexual Self in Survivorship: A Survey of How Survivors Cope with Changes in Sexual Life after Breast Cancer Treatment
Breastcancer.org is partnering with researchers from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to survey our community about their experience of sexual life after breast cancer treatment. Take this survey to help us learn how breast cancer affects sexual life and what women are doing to maximize their sexual wellbeing. The results of this research may help guide the development of new coping resources for breast cancer survivors and their loved ones worldwide.
The survey will be available until mid-March. Participants just need to be women, age 18 or older, who have been diagnosed with stage I-IV disease.
Find out more and start the survey here: https://redcap.partners.org/redcap/surveys/?s=E87E8JFNTT
