Jill Sittenauer, left, regional communications director for the American Cancer Society, visits with researcher Christie Befort, of Preventive Medicine & Public Health at Kansas University Medical Center, on May 3, 2012, in Befort's office. The American Cancer Society helped fund Befort's pilot weight loss study for rural breast cancer survivors, and Befort is showing Sittenhauer some of those promising results. Befort said women who are overweight and women who gain weight after diagnosis have an increased risk for breast cancer recurrence and worse prognosis compared to women with a normal body weight.
