Army of Women is recruiting

[Army of Women is recruiting breast cancer survivors who had benign diagnosis prior to finding the disease...]

Women who have had a benign breast biopsy are at higher risk of developing breast cancer than women who have not had a breast biopsy. However, there is currently no way to determine which women who have had a benign breast biopsy will actually go on to develop the disease. Is it possible that the amount of DNA damage seen in the cells in the normal breast tissue may be an indicator of future breast cancer risk? A research team at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center is trying to find out!

If you were diagnosed with breast cancer at least two years after you had a benign biopsy and you live in the United States, and this sounds like a study you might be interested in, read on!

If this study isn't the right fit for you, please think about your friends, family members and any other women you know who might be interested. As a member of the Army of Women you have an important opportunity to accelerate breast cancer research by forwarding this Call to Action and helping fill this study. Let's show the researchers what we can do!

Please don't feel as though you are not contributing to the Army of Women if you aren't able to sign up for this study or if you haven't yet been able to sign up for one at all. Forwarding our information to friends and family is just as important as participating in a study. Additionally, many more studies are on the way and, eventually, everyone will be able to participate!


The researchers need to enroll 150 women in this study.
Who is conducting the study?
Dr. Isabelle Bedrosian and Dr. Abenaa Brewster, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX
Anywhere in the US
Who can participate?
You can join the Discovery of Early Markers of Breast Cancer study if you match ALL of these MAIN categories:

You have been diagnosed with breast cancer (NOT including DCIS)

You had a benign breast biopsy after January 2000

You were diagnosed with breast cancer (NOT including DCIS) at least 2 years after your benign biopsy

You are a woman over the age of 18

You were NOT pregnant or breastfeeding when you had the benign breast biopsy

You were NOT using birth control pills or menopausal hormone therapy when you had the benign breast biopsy

You have NOT tested positive for BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 (if known)

You live in the United States

After you RSVP, the researcher will ask you additional questions to be sure that this study is a right fit for you.
