Closed Projects

Since October 2008, we have supported more than 145 studies, connecting over 106,000 volunteers with innovative research around the world. These research projects have studied everything from our microbiota to novel breast cancer genes. We have made a point to partner with researchers who are asking important questions that may help eradicate breast cancer.

While these research studies are always different, there is one common factor: our dedicated Army of Women members. With their help, the following supported studies completed enrollment:

Breast cancer survivors can have a lot of post-treatment problems, such as fatigue, depression, and a decrease in physical function. It is possible that physical activities, like yoga, could help ease these symptoms. This study wanted to learn how yoga affects fatigue, immune function, and mood of women treated for breast cancer. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 250 volunteers from the Army of Women (AOW) from Columbus, OH. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on February 23, 2009. The researchers closed enrollment on June 18th, 2009, after the AOW provided them with 23 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
