Since the primary goal is filling studies, there will be days I will interrupt my regularly scheduled insanity to get the word out about new studies. Today's broadcast will be seen in its entirety. Tomorrow. This is more important. And, if you think this ingenious idea doesn't work, two studies were filled in the past week!
The response to this study within the first day was overwhelming. If you never had breast cancer but you did have a biopsy done which, thankfully was negative, can I ask you to consider donating some of your time? This is a study that can be done from your computer and with a telephone. You can reside anywhere in the USA. You don't have to leave your home.
Can you do a phone interview? Answer a written questionnaire? Are you willing to have your pathology slides from that biopsy sent to MD Anderson? Hell, you already did the hard part. Those slides are just sitting in no man's land.
What's that I hear? Yes, Yes and Yes! Ok... scroll down to read all of the details to see if you fit the rest of the criteria..... Wait, I think I just heard someone say they had a cancer diagnosis but they know a relative that may just fit the ticket. Pass the info along?
Let's close this one out, too. I have an affinity for Things In Threes.
Alongside the research team at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, the Army of Women has just launched Phase 2 of the Discovery of Early Markers of Breast Cancer Study to investigate whether the amount of DNA damage seen in the cells of normal breast tissue might indicate future breast cancer risk. They’ve already collected data and tissue samples from women who had a benign biopsy but then went on to develop breast cancer.
NOW, they need women who had a benign breast biopsy but did NOT go on to develop breast cancer!
