Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program Seeks Breast Cancer Survivors for Survey
The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program is seeking breast cancer survivors to respond to a survey to determine the long and short-term value of support groups. The program, which has provided emotional support and education to New Yorkers concerned about breast cancer for 36 years, is in the second year of this research, asking survivors to share their feelings about support groups. The initial results of the research, conducted with 90 respondents, has produced some interesting data:
The researchers have found that many of the respondents have favorable thoughts about breast cancer with 65% expressing gratitude that they are grateful that they beat breast cancer and 46% report thinking favorably about the support they received.
Those who are interested in contributing to this research can find the form at http://goo.gl/forms/ov6yupycyI or call Erin Nau, LCSW 516-877-4314.
