Sisters of Breast Cancer Patients Wanted for Study

separator The Sister Study is currently enrolling women age 35 to 74 who have a sister who’s had breast cancer. The goal of the study is to identify possible environmental and genetic risk factors for the disease. Experts already know many of the risk factors for breast cancer, including increasing age, having children later in life or not at all, being physically inactive and being obese after menopause.

The Sister Study hopes to identify things in the environment, such as chemicals and food, and things in your genetic makeup that can also affect your risk of cancer. Women who take part in the study will comprise various age groups, ethnicities, races, religions and income levels, so the hope is that the information they contribute will help a wide range of people.
