Abstract : Cancer treatment-related fatigue is recognized as a significant and long-lasting problem that effects patients both physically and emotionally and influences their treatment decisions and long-term recovery. The purpose of this study is to test the direct and indirect relationships of exercise to cancer treatment-related fatigue and quality of life in women with breast cancer receiving adjuvant chemotherapy. Thirty-one subjects have been enrolled in the 8-week home based exercise study. Subjects receive weekly telephone follow-up calls to remind them to return exercise logs and collect data on cancer treatment-related fatigue, symptoms, and affect. No adverse events have been observed, and subject recruitment is progressing as planned.
