Brain Fitness Program Offers Hope for Breast Cancer Survivors Suffering From 'Chemobrain'
Date:10/24/2008

4% of participants experienced positive changes in their overall well-being and reported statistically significant improvements in cognitive function, stress level and health-related quality of life.

Sueann Mark, PhD, was a study participant. "When I began the training, I couldn't remember appointments, where I put things and I had trouble finding the right word," she said. Dr. Mark said she started to notice changes after using the program for just a couple of weeks. "My attention span was getting longer. I could read through entire articles that a couple of weeks ago I couldn't get through. Knowing that I was exercising my mind and reactivating it was really comforting to me."

"While further studies are needed, the implications for improved brain health in cancer patients look promising," said lead researcher, Sarah-Jane Kim. "It's a practical approach to improving the quality of life in cancer patients because it is non-invasive and therefore, does not require additional medication and does not interfere with the cancer treatment."
