If you are over your ideal weight and have symptoms or a history of breast cancer related lymphedema, consider applying to the WISER Survivor project. This study is a one year weight loss and exercise study for sedentary breast cancer survivors who are looking to lose weight.
The WISER Survivor studywill examine the effect of exercise and/or weight loss has on lymphedema, breast cancer recurrence and quality of life. This is important because exercise and/or weight loss might reduce recurrence risk for breast cancer and lymphedema symptoms through these physiological changes. The study will involve 500 pre- and post-menopausal women. Each woman will be in the study for approximately 12 months. Check out their website for more details or to apply to the study!
Look for Drs. Krisher and Carruthers on Christina Cooks! While Christina shows you how to make some healthy treats, our doctors will answer questions on living a healthy lifestyle and life after breast cancer! Check out the broadcast on March 13 on WHYY.
