Woman to woman: A video series for breast cancer patients

Under this grant, Woman to Woman, a project of Medical Media Associates (MMA), will plan and conduct a series of three focus groups, two on breast cancer survivors, and another featuring medical professionals. The outcome of these focus groups will become the basis for editing their first video and accompanying study guide. Ultimately, they will produce a series of 12 videos based on interviews with breast cancer survivors and their families. The video series will be directed at women newly diagnosed with breast cancer and will be available wherever breast cancer is diagnosed and treated (e.g., hospitals, doctors' offices, clinics), and also available in libraries and on public television. Woman to Woman videos and study guides will give patients a place to start understanding what is happening to them, where this disease and its treatment will take them, and especially that they are not alone.
