Stress and Breast Cancer Study
This study at Stanford University, in Calif., is investigating the relationships between psychological factors such as stress, quality of sleep, hormones, immunity, and cancer progression. The researchers wanted to enroll at least 125 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Love Research Army members on September 2, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment on April 11, 2011, after the Love Research Army provided them with 363 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
