March 3rd is Triple Negative Breast Cancer Day!
The global movement to raise awareness of triple negative breast cancer is near and dear to me, as this is the type of breast cancer that I faced in November 2010, just days after learning I was pregnant. Prior to my diagnosis, I knew nothing about this disease. I had no idea that despite having no family history, this aggressive type of breast cancer disproportionately affects younger women, as well as those of African, Latina, Caribbean descent and those with BRCA mutations.
- To learn more about this disease, follow the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation on Facebook or check out these TNBC Day facts.
- You can also read my story featured on the Living Beyond Breast Cancer TNBC Aware blog series: TNBC Aware – From TNBC Diagnosis to TNBC Champion.
- I will serve as a panelist for a Twitter chat on triple negative breast cancer on 3/3/15 at 7pm CT. Tune in on Twitter using hashtag #LBBCchat. Learn more.
As a 2015 TNBC Day Champion, I’ve also chosen to do something positive about triple negative breast cancer. Join me in supporting TNBC Day!
