Health of Women Study: Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation

HOW study link

The Health of Women Study Needs You!  Today, Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, in collaboration with SHARE, is launching a new piece of the [HOW] Study, and we're inviting ALL of our friends and supporters to be a part of this important project.

Last year, SHARE joined Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation on their project by collecting questions from breast cancer survivors about the side effects of their treatments to document the real cost of the cure in terms of the physical and emotional collateral damage that follows breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. 

In response to those questions, Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation needs everyone -- with and without a history of breast cancer--  to participate in the HOW study comparing the women who have been treated for breast cancer and those who have not. The goal is to collect and analyze data on specific symptoms identified as side effects, and to compare those with quality of life issues experienced by the general population. We're also interested in your health history to better understand whether some people (with or without breast cancer) are more susceptible to certain symptoms that interfere with quality of life.

The Health of Women Study is online and you can register by visiting The questionnaire may take between 20 and 90 minutes to complete, depending on how detailed your health history is. It doesn't have to be completed in one sitting, but please remember to save your place, by clicking the save button, before taking a break.

If you have any questions about the process or as you are completing the questionnaire, please feel free to contact the team at Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation at
