The purpose of this study was to test the effectiveness of Mi Vida Saludable (My Healthy Life), a program designed to help Latina/Hispanic breast cancer survivors eat a healthy diet and be physically active. The Mi Vida Saludable program included four weeks of hands-on and in-person nutrition and physical activity education classes and 11 months of electronic communication via text messaging, emails, and a website.

The researchers closed enrollment on June 4, 2019, after the AOW provided them with 7 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
