This study at the University of California, Los Angeles, is investigating the best way to provide post-treatment education materials about life after breast cancer: via the mail or with a multi-media education tool that can be viewed over the Internet or on a CD-Rom. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 1080 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on September 16, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment on April 14, 2011, after the Army of Women provided them with 2,579 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
