One in eight Caucasian women (CW) and approximately 1 in 11 African American women (AAW) will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Although, the incidence rate for breast cancer is lower, AAW younger than age 50 are more likely to develop breast cancer than CW. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among AAW and is diagnosed at later stages. AAW are more likely to die of this disease at almost every age than are CW. The African American woman’s death rate is approximately 20% higher than CW and other racial or ethnic groups. To explore survivorship in AAW a pilot study was undertaken Purpose/Design: using qualitative methodology to generate a grounded theory to answer the question, what are the experiences of AAW who have survived breast cancer? Sample: Five AAW ages 20 and older will be recruited. The women will be diagnosed with Stage I, II, III, or IV breast cancer and be at least 3 months post diagnosis. Participants will be recruited form cancer centers, support groups, and word of mouth using convenience sampling. Methods: Open ended questions and face to face interviews using an interview guide. Complete a 15 question demographic form. Results: In progress.
