The study

Over 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States annually. Many breast cancer patients and survivors cope with a fused conglomerate of depression, pain and fatigue that affect quality of life; are very difficult to treat and are associated with poor adherence to cancer treatments, delayed return to work, and higher healthcare use, costs, and hospitalizations. Approximately one-third of women coping with breast cancer experience persistent symptoms of depression, pain and fatigue, which are not normative and are difficult to treat.
