Abstract

A non-experimental descriptive research design was used in the study, which involved 30 respondents in selected areas of Cavite, namely Imus, Bacoor, General Trias and Carmona, selected using purposive sampling technique. A questionnaire was used as the research tool and the data obtained was tallied and encoded in the computer for statistical computation using frequency, percentage, mean and t-test of independent variable. The study concluded that, 1) Most of the respondents are female adolescents whose age ranges 17-20 years old, presently in the high school level and belongs to a nuclear family; 2) Both of the factors emotional and social well being had the mean of 2.83 and 2.80 (high), respectively. This means that there is a high impact on emotional and social well being of adolescents whose mothers are diagnosed with breast cancer. This suggests that the respondents agree with the statements in the questionnaire under this aspect of impact on emotional and social well being; 2) There was no significant difference in the impact on the emotional well being of adolescents whose mothers are diagnosed with breast cancer when grouped according to age, gender, family structure and educational attainment; 3) There was no significant difference in the impact of social well-being when grouped according to the demographic variables mentioned. These factors do not affect the social well being of adolescents whose mothers are diagnosed with breast cancer.
