I never actually met Linda Tauber, but briefly corresponded with her husband John when her triple-negative breast cancer did not respond to chemotherapy. Her husband wrote a loving goodbye to her on Caring Bridge. And, from reading Linda’s own posts, she lived a full—although far too short—life. Her obituary in the St. Petersburg Times encourages friends to donate to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure 3-Day for the Cure in Linda’s memory.
I wish I’d had a chance to meet Linda. She sounds like a beautiful woman in all ways. Let’s hope that current research on TNBC ultimately yields successful treatment and prevention for this mean disease.
