The blog has become a part of me, a focus of my life, and a beautiful reward. I am saddened to see the search terms readers use to get to me: The most popular is a variation of "triple negative survival statistics." Readers often frame that question in terms such as "Can you survive triple negative?" The answer, of course, is yes. Triple negative is not an automatic death sentence, and I have posted the stats here to prove that--the great majority of women with the disease survive.
I sit here with a sinus infection feeling sorry for myself . And then I get perspective. I am more than three-years disease-free of hormone-negative, and most cases recur in the first three years. My readers remind me also that my case was not that big of a deal.
So happy anniversary to this blog, and thanks to all of you who have connected with me, and whose emails I look forward to--Deb, Ghazala, Noreen, Victoria, Marousa, Rose, Anhila, Doris, Kimberly, Susan, Carol, Julie, Susan, Nancy, Penny, Chelsea.... What a beautiful international list.
