Resilience among patients and survivors - Thursday, August 01, 2013 3:23 PM
My name is Susan, and I am a breast cancer survivor.  I was diagnosed just over 3 years ago, and after chemotherapy and radiation, I am currently cancer-free.

I am also a Ph.D. student and am currently conducting a study about the experience of resilience by breast cancer patients and survivors.  I am looking for individuals who have experienced a sense of resilience during their treatment and recovery to participate in the study.  The study would be approved by my university's review board.

Participation is easy...a person only needs to submit a written description...and of course all results would be handled confidentially.  My goal is to understand more about resilience in cancer treatment and recovery so that we can educate others about how to more successfully navigate their journey.

If you are interested in sharing your perspective, please message me for additional details.  I appreciate your willingness to contribute to the knowledge about living with and surviving this disease.
