The goal of this study is to better understand what women are thinking about and feeling as they decide on their cancer treatments. The AOW provided the researchers with 219 women who were interested in participating. The results of this study may help researchers develop new interventions that may better assist women newly diagnosed with breast cancer with their treatment decisions.
