Support Program for Korean Breast Cancer Survivors!

Dr. Sunmin Lee, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Health, and her research team have developed a program to help Korean breast cancer survivors and equip them with the knowledge to live healthier, happier lives. A variety of topics, such as diet and exercise, will be covered. The program will have 7 weekly sessions, each session lasting about 2 hours, and is anticipated to start in the spring of 2014. Program participants will be compensated a total of $75.

Qualified participants must:
  • Be Korean American women ages 25-70
  • Have been diagnosed with stage I-IIIA breast cancer
  • Have had surgery and/or completed treatment within the past year (may still be receiving adjuvant therapies) or plan to receive treatment
  • Be able to speak and read Korean
The study is funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health.

  1. I was fighting against a cancer stage 4.I think it is very important that family support to win, because i was very weak;really helped me participate in one group of affected by cancer, so my mood improved, also helped me a lot a medical adviser in (they are doctors),this is important .I recomended not surrender, because sometimes the first treatment does not work as me, and sometimes change doctors it is necessary.Read positive thinking books gave me more energy.During my cancer,i changed my diet,now i eat vegetarian organic food(now i not eat meat).I think is a set of things that help.
