Recruitment is ongoing for the research study of Social Support and Sexual Minority Women with Breast Cancer. If you have not already done so, I hope you will consider participating in this survey, sharing this post with your Facebook networks, or emailing the survey link to others. Recruitment for this study is ongoing and will continue for several months. Also, if you are part of an organization that might reach people eligible for this survey in person, let me know and I can email you a flyer.

Are you a women who has sex with women, is lesbian, bisexual, or queer?
Do you now, or have you ever, had breast cancer?

My name is Maria Brown, and I am a professor at Syracuse University. I am conducting research about the sources of stress and social support affecting sexual minority women (lesbians, bisexual women, queer women, women who have sex with women) who have had breast cancer. By learning more about the breast cancer experiences of sexual minority women, I hope to identify ways in which sexual orientation or gender identity are relevant to breast cancer treatment and life as a breast cancer survivor. This information should help us to better understand what sexual minority women go through in these situations, in order to develop programs that better serve this population

Participation in this study involves completing an online survey which will take about 30-45 minutes of your time. For participating in the survey, you will be given the choice of entering in a raffle for a $10 Amazon e-gift card. If you are interested in participating in this research, please visit the following web address:

If you have any questions about your rights as a research participant, you have questions, concerns or complaints that you with to address to someone other than the investigator, or if you cannot reach the investigator, contact the Syracuse University Institutional Review Board at 315-443-3013.

How often do you feel your own heart beating?
I would guess, not very often. As long as things are working like they're supposed to, most of us can't even feel our heartbeat - unless we are intentionally taking our pulse or something. But most of us won't even do that unless we are monitoring our heart...

A full description of the study is available through the link.

Please share this survey link with your networks.

My Dad, God rest his soul, was a 1960's man until the day he died in 2010.  He always wore a suit jacket and trousers, always wore a tie, and a short-sleeved white undershirt under a button-down dress shirt. He always wore an...
