Numbness, Tingling, Or Pain In Your Hands Or Feet After Breast Cancer Treatments?

Take part in a 16-week Research study For Women Only testing the effects of a Low-Impact, home-based Gait and Balance program that could provide needed relief.

See if you qualify by registering today. You may be eligible for up to $125 in compensation.

Who qualifies and what do you get?

To participate, you must be experiencing neuropathy (tingling and numbness) and have completed chemotherapy for breast cancer.

The 16-week study testing the effects of a home-based exercise program is open to breast cancer survivors experiencing neuropathy over the age of 21. 

Eligible participants may be compensated a total of $125–and come away an effective home-based exercise regimen and exercise equipment needed for the study.


This program is low impact and is appropriate for virtually any fitness level.  No cardio is required.  After a thorough evaluation at USF and incorporating just one hour of exercise using balancing techniques and strength-building Pilates flexbands into your day, you can regain much of the feeling in your hands and feet that you lost after chemotherapy treatments for your breast cancer. 

Congratulations, you’ve beaten breast cancer. Now, your peripheral neuropathy is the last hurdle to clear to feel like your old self again.

“Thanks to their amazing team of nurses, doctors, physical therapists, and personal trainers, I am stronger physically and emotionally and PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY FREE after my breast cancer treatments. Taking part in the study improved my leg strength, my balance, and my outlook! I highly recommend this 16-week, home-based research study to any woman suffering from peripheral neuropathy from taxane-based chemotherapy treatments. Thank you USF for helping me take control of my recovery.”
