Women with TNBC find they share more than disease

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a good piece about two women in Atlanta who leaned on one another as they both faced triple-negative breast cancer.  I would correct one line here, though.  The article says triple-negative is “one of the deadliest breast cancers there is.”  I would say the women face a form of breast cancer that can be aggressive but is highly survivable.  Ugh.  I do get tired of tired journalism that uses thoughtless language that can terrify women unnecessarily. (As though it is ever necessary to terrify women.)  Especially in a positive piece such as this.
