The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of Mi Vida Saludable (My Healthy Life), a program designed to help Latina/Hispanic breast cancer survivors eat a healthy diet and be physically active. The Mi Vida Saludable program includes four weeks of hands-on and in-person nutrition and physical activity education classes and 11 months of electronic communication via text messaging, emails, and a website. Participants will track their physical activity with a Fitbit Zip, which they keep at the end of the study.

The purpose of this study is to see whether neratinib is effective in treating HER2-negative metastatic tumors that have this specific HER2 mutation. The first part of the study is a preliminary screening. During this part of the study, your tumor tissue will be tested to see if it has the HER2 mutation the researchers are looking for. If your tumor has the mutation, you will be given more information about the main research study, which is investigating the effectiveness of neratinib.

Researcher: Susan Neuhausen, PhD, City of Hope, Duarte, CA
Broadcast date: January 22, 2014

The goal of this study is to learn more about breast cancer in Hispanic women by studying Hispanic women with breast cancer and Hispanic women who have never had breast cancer. The research team has enrolled Hispanic women with breast cancer for the study. Now, they need Hispanic women who have never had any type of cancer (skin cancers are okay).

If you enroll in this study, you will NOT receive any individual genetic test results. Every participant is assigned a coded study number, and no genetic information is connected to her name. There is no way for the researchers to ever tell you anything about your test results. By taking part in this study, you will help researchers help future generations of Hispanic Women.

Researcher: Paul Goodfellow, PhD, and Robert Pilarski, MS, at Ohio State University

The purpose of the study is to learn what genetic factors may play a role in the development of breast cancer in young women. The researchers need to recruit 5,000 women who were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer when they were 40 years old or younger for this study.
