Moving Forward Together 3

Moving Forward Together 3 (MFT3) is a research study aimed at increasing physical activity among women facing breast cancer through a home-based exercise walking program. The MFT3 study is being conducted by the University of South Carolina in partnership with the American Cancer Society’s Reach to Recovery® Program. 

Recruitment for the Moving Forward Together 3 study has closed. Thank you for your interest.

Women who: 

¨ Are 21 years or older 

¨ Have been diagnosed with Stage 0-3 breast cancer

Participate and receive helpful tip sheets to assist you in staying active and receive a pedometer to wear during exercise. 

Read what women who participated in a similar program had to say: 

“The program really stimulates a ‘desire’ to walk! I feel now I want to walk- an important part of my day!” 

“I have been very successful at building time for regular activity/exercise into what was previously a very sedentary  lifestyle. If it worked for me, it can work for others!”

“It’s nice to be connected to something or someone who understands what you went through.” Identifier: NCT02694640
