Share the Journey: Mind, Body, and Wellness after Breast Cancer
How can we better manage the symptoms of breast cancer treatment together?
Share the Journey: Mind, Body and Wellness after breast cancer enables a medical research study that aims to understand the symptoms after breast cancer treatment, why these symptoms vary over time, and what can be done to improve them.
Share the Journey will use questionnaires and collect phone sensor data to track five common symptoms of breast cancer treatment that can persist even after active treatment ends: fatigue, mood and cognitive changes, sleep disturbances, and changes in exercise. The app will allow you to track these symptoms and others of your choosing, review trends, and provide your insights to researchers and the breast cancer community about how your symptoms might change day to day.
This study is unique in that it allows participants to step up as equal partners in both the surveillance and management of their symptoms as well as in the research process. We are recruiting women between the ages of 18 and 80 to participate in the study – women without a history of cancer will play an important role in the study as well.
