The purpose of this study is to gain greater understanding of the problems breast cancer survivors experience related to difficulty sleeping and insomnia. Poor sleep can affect a person's mood, increase feelings of fatigue, as well as pain. A greater knowledge and understanding of sleep disturbances can lead to more effective treatment of sleep problems and significantly improve quality of life.
