Recent Closed Study: The “At-Home Support for Rural Women Using Group Video Calling” study investigated whether a professionally led breast cancer support group that uses video calling, and which women can take part in from their home, is feasible, useful, and satisfactory for breast cancer survivors in rural California. The study opened to the Army of Women on February 13th 2013. When the research team closed enrollment on November 4th, 2013, the Army of Women had provided them with 23 women interested in the study. Large Recruitment: The purpose of the “Breast Cancer Risk Assessment in Nursing Mothers” study is to analyze biomarkers found in breast milk from women who are breastfeeding. The research team wants to learn more about biomarkers that may be linked to breast cancer risk and the effect that breastfeeding has on these biomarkers. The research team requested 200 participants for their study. To date we have provided them with 774 women willing to participate in their research study. 204 women signed up for the study within 24 hours! The researchers were so enthusiastic about the response that they have decided to leave the study recruitment open to attract additional interested nursing mothers.
