My name is Satoko Mii and I am a junior at Yorktown High School in Westchester, NY. I participate in a Science Research Program.(www.yhsresearch.org) where my goal is to work on a research that will make a difference in saving lives.
Influenced by my mother’s breast cancer experience, I chose to study “The Effect of Psychological Stress on the Development of Breast Cancer”. My father had a near death car accident 7 years prior to my mother’s breast cancer diagnosis. I was two years old and we had no relatives in the U.S. I have always wondered if this stressful event has had any effect on the development of my mother’s cancer after learning that most breast cancers develop over a number of years. If indeed correlations between psychological stress and breast cancer is found, it may be an important step to alert health care professionals of this as well as potentially making stress management education a part of routine physical examination.
There have been limited studies on this topic with no conclusive results. In fact, very few studies have approached this topic from a “grass root” level. Therefore, with your cooperation, I would like to move this study to the next level by reaching out to as many people as possible that would be interested and willing to participate in a short, online, anonymous survey. With enough participation, I will be able to present my findings at different scientific fairs & symposiums (e.g. Intel) where many judges are influential medical professionals and research scientists.
I would appreciate if you could have my survey be known to your group members via Facebook/Twitter and/or by forwarding my email. I have also attached a flyer with a QR code if you have an appropriate place to put up.
Here is the link to my survey. (by Dec. 21st)
It should take about 15-20min. I would be happy to share my results with those who may be interested. Please write “Send survey results to…” in the subject and include your email address.
Thank you very much,
