Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
The BurnAlong Pilot Study for Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivors
The purpose of this prospective, interventional, single-arm pilot study is to evaluate whether virtually delivered group-based physical activity is feasible for adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer survivors. AYAs who were diagnosed with cancer and have completed cancer treatment will be recruited for this study. This study will enroll 20 participants in total and will last approximately 3 months.
This is a single-arm, prospective, interventional pilot study.
Adolescent and young adult (AYA) survivors of cancer (n=20) will engage in three months of virtually group physical activity (PA) delivered via BurnAlong, a wellness platform and online app.
Participants will be asked to engage in a BurnAlong workout session with a partner (friend/spouse/child/fellow study participant) a minimum of three times a week for 3 months.
Participants will also meet monthly with an exercise physiologist for a customized exercise session. Participants are allowed to engage in additional PA and non-PA sessions on BurnAlong as desired.
Participants will also be asked to engage in a private social network discussions around key topics of interest for AYA communities with a focus on post-traumatic growth and positive psychology with a minimum of 2 post engagements a week for 3 months.
Participants will complete surveys and physical assessments at baseline and at end of study.
Participants also participate in a 1 hr qualitative exit interview about their well-being, participation experiences, and experience with using the BurnAlong platform.
