Study Information
BEAT Cancer Study

This study conducted by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Alabama at Birmingham is evaluating the effectiveness of the BEAT Cancer exercise program. The research team is comparing the effects of the BEAT Cancer exercise intervention to usual care (written materials about exercise for cancer survivors) on short- and longer-term physical activity adherence among breast cancer survivors. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 256 volunteers and used the Army of Women (AOW) as one of their recruitment sources. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on May 29, 2011, and the researchers closed enrollment on Sept. 28, 2015. The AOW provided them with 64 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.

Study Information
Jewels in Our Genes

This study at the University at Buffalo, in New York, is investigating whether there are undiscovered inherited genetic mutations unique to African Americans that may predict early breast cancer risk. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 400 volunteers (150 families). The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on October 6, 2010. The Army of Women provided them with 190 women who were interested in enrolling in the study. The researchers closed enrollment on June 15, 2012, with 33 percent of its study sample coming from the Army of Women.

Study Information
Memory Training Intervention for Breast Cancer Survivors

This study at Indiana University School of Nursing is comparing two different types of memory training programs to see if one or both of the programs might be effective in breast cancer survivors. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 108 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on October 27, 2010. The researchers were able to close enrollment on February 18, 2011, after the Army of Women provided them with 27 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.

Study Information
Hormones, the KRAS-variant and Breast Cancer Risk

This study at Yale University in New Haven, CT, is investigating the effects of hormone replacement therapy and other types of estrogen exposure on a marker of breast cancer risk the research team has identified. The researchers originally wanted to enroll up to 1,500 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on April 17, 2013. After the Army of Women members began responding in high numbers to the Call to Action, the research team decided to keep the study open and recruit as many women as possible in a one-month period. Doing so will allow the team to study a wide variety of survivors, including pre- and post-menopausal women and women with different stages and grades of breast cancer. When the study closed on May 22, 2013, the Army of Women had provided the team with more than 2,460 women who were interested in enrolling in the study
