New Study for Black Women Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer in Canada

Women’s College Hospital, in partnership with the Olive Branch of Hope, has launched a quality improvement project focused on Black Women living with metastatic breast cancer. This focus group study will evaluate the unique journeys of Black women who have been previously diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer, or are currently living with it. Leading this impactful research is the esteemed primary investigator, Dr. Aisha Lofters.

Black women are disproportionately affected by cancer and being able to shed light on their unique challenges will give insights to foster a better understanding of their experiences. The Women’s college Hospital is putting our a call for eligible women to participate in this vital research study.

All sessions will be conducted virtually to ensure accessibility for participants from various locations. This approach provides a convenient platform for individuals interested in contributing to this transformative research.

How to Get Involved:
If you or someone you know is a Black woman living with Metastatic Breast Cancer and desires to contribute to this vital research, please register your interest here. If you’d like more details about the research, you can send an email to Ilakkiah.Chandran@wchospital.ca. Your unique insights can make a difference in understanding and improving the lives of those affected by this condition.

By engaging in shared experiences and actively participating in transformative research, we have the power to make a lasting and meaningful impact on healthcare. Let our collective efforts pave the way for a brighter and healthier future for all.
