Study Information
Chemotherapy-induced premature menopause in Latina Women with BC

This study at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester is exploring the unique experiences and needs of Latina breast cancer survivors whose treatments have resulted in chemotherapy-induced menopause. The researchers wanted to enroll 20 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Love Research Army members on August 22, 2012. The researchers were able to close enrollment eight days later, on August 30, 2012, after the Love Research Army provided them with 47 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
