This study is being done to see if patients receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer affects the heart, the ability to exercise and fatigue when compared to patients who do not have cancer.


840 women aged 18 years old scheduled to receive chemotherapy for Stage I-III breast cancer and a comparison population of 160 women without cancer (1,000 total). Equal numbers of women will be recruited aged < 52 vs. > 52. At baseline, innovative MRI measures of CV function (LV and aorta); measurements of submaximal (6-minute walk) and, on 45% of the cohort, maximal (peak VO2) exercise capacity; questionnaire data to assess fatigue and behavioral and psychosocial risk factors; and biomarkers will be collected.

Measurements will be repeated at 31, 122 and 242 months. This study will assess the relevance of pre-existing factors such as age, black/white race, hypertension, smoking (yes/no), diabetes, coronary artery disease, menopause status, CV medications, and physical activity on the study outcomes. Also, this study will assess dynamic change in modifiable CV risk factors (including BMI, blood pressure, serum lipids, serum glucose, physical activity, psychosocial factors, lifestyle behaviors), and the cancer treatment including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and surgery.
