I just got a news release from the University of Connecticut about gene splicing and how that can lead to triple-negative breast cancer. It’s the beginning of what could be promising research for a targeted therapy for TNBC.
BUT, in the middle of the release is this utterly outrageous sentence:
Triple negatives are the worst breast cancers: they have the highest rates of metastasis, worst prognosis, and no targeted treatments.
this most dreaded form of breast cancer.”
I am livid! This is irresponsible and wrong. I was diagnosed in June 2006, 13.5 years ago. I had a second cancer in June 2015, 4.5 years ago. I’m doing fine. I didn’t like the experience, but I survived, as do most women with TNBC.
