Every year, approximately 1.38 million people are diagnosed with breast cancer, worldwide. Previous studies have shown that religiosity is crucial for the health and quality of life of cancer patients. This study explored religious faith associated with the recovery experience of women who survived breast cancer for more than five years without recurrence. A qualitative methodology was used and in-depth semi structured interviews were conducted. The interviews were audio-taped. Data were transcribed and analyzed using content analysis. Data were saturated after interviewing 10 breast cancer survivors, mostly Buddhists. Four common themes were developed: peace of mind, obey God’s will, religious social support, and being grateful. The findings of this study revealed crucial suggestions for healthcare professionals and providers of follow-up care in services for breast cancer survivors.
