Abstract

This article explores long-term survivorship (5 years or longer) through focus group discussions with women who have experienced breast cancer. The data revealed four major themes; integration of the disease process into current life, change in perspective, and unresolved issues. These data begin to shed light on the issues of breast cancer survivors and can provide a basis for development of a quantitative instrument to be tested with larger populations
