Triple Negative Breast Cancer Day is a national day (3.3.14) devoted to raising awareness of triple negative breast cancer and generating funds to advance medical research and provide support to those impacted by the disease. TNBC Day, spearheaded by the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation, will bring thousands of supporters nationwide together for grassroots fundraising and awareness events in a combined effort to tackle this disease.
As a 3-year triple negative breast cancer survivor and TNBC Day Champion, my goal is to help women like myself find the support and resources they need to fight this disease. I know that sharing experiences and knowledge is an essential part of the journey. I also know that education is key. That is why I want you to know the facts about TNBC. Did you know that:
- TNBC tends to be more aggressive, more likely to recur, and more difficult to treat because there is no targeted treatment.
- TNBC disproportionately strikes younger women, women of African, Latina or Caribbean descent.
- Approximately every half hour, a woman in the US is diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer.
As a TNBC Day supporter, I am also helping to raise funds by hosting Tee for a Cure, an online t-shirt fundraiser. When you purchase a Tee for the Cure t-shirt ($20 + shipping) via TeeSpring, you will help the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation in its mission to find a targeted treatment for triple negative breast cancer and support those impacted by the disease.
