This study at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, PA, is investigating whether giving hormones that mimic pregnancy to women with a BRCA1 or 2 mutation can change these high risk women’s breast tissue in ways that appear to reduce their risk. The researchers wanted to enroll 11 Army of Women members. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on April 14, 2010. The researchers closed enrollment on March 19, 2013, after the Army of Women provided them with 7 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
