      I was diagnosed TNBC Stage II In March of 2016 at the age of 40. I had 16 rounds of Chemo (Adriamycin/Cytoxan and Taxol/Carboplatin) followed by a double mastectomy. A TNBC diagnosis can be very scary as there is plenty of negative information one can find about lack of treatment options and recurrence rates. However, there have been many recent advances in the understanding and management of TNBC. I have been followed closely, every 3 months, since my initial diagnosis. I still deal with anxiety with each of those follow-up appointments and bloodwork. But I cancer-free today and I count my blessings each and every day and don't take anything for granted. Find a team of doctors and nurses that you can trust and put you at ease. Listen to their advice and live your best life.
