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.
