Participation in the Breast Cancer Dreams Research Project will help us determine what aspects of warning dreams may be useful to the healthcare professionals taking care of your daughters and granddaughters in the future.  After signing a consent form you will fill out a 19 item dream questionnaire shown below that will be linked at the Dreams Cloud social networking site and post narratives of your dreams there. We will not ask you for any additional medical information. The process is explained in this 6 minute video.
