Western MA Nursing Mothers Wanted for Breast Cancer Study

Tanya Lieberman of Northampton, MA writes:

I’m helping to recruit nursing mothers for a breast cancer study based at UMass, and am hoping that you might know of mothers who would qualify. We’re looking for:

  1. Mothers who are 25 or younger and nursing, and
  2. Mothers who are in their mid-30’s and nursing, who also had and nursed a baby in their mid 20’s or younger.

They would be asked to donate a milk sample, which would be picked up from their home, and fill out a questionnaire. They would receive $25 in thanks. We’re trying to recruit locally (within 50 miles of Amherst), but could pick up samples from further away if there are several mothers who qualify. Any interested mothers can contact me at: motherwearblog@gmail.com. More information about this and another breast cancer study using breastmilk is at www.breastmilkresearch.org. We can also provide flyers and brochures about these studies.

Thank you!
Tanya Lieberman, IBCLC
