Surviving TNBC Featured on WHO-TV

 WHO-TV in Des Moines, Iowa, recently did a story on me and my book, Surviving Triple-Negative Breast Cancer.  Check it out.  It was a fabulous experience for me—the reporter was exceptionally well prepared and asked impressively intelligent questions.  The photographer was so involved that he suggested using the notebook I kept while undergoing treatment, specifically to show the phrase, "Patricia, it's not that bad,"which is what the doctor told me when she called to tell me it was cancer.  I blessed that woman on a regular basis for giving me a positive outlook on my treatment and as I say in the book, "it's not that bad" became my mantra.  Anyway, here's the story, including way too much footage of my bald head.  Both the reporter, Erin Kiernan,  and photographer, Mike Borland, are graduates of Drake University's School of Journalism and Mass Communication, where I spent most of my professional life.

Love your DR. Mine said "Oh no, I don't know what it is but it's not good" Good thing is you don't have to believe what they tell you and I'm in remission and healthier than I've ever been 18 months later. Looking forward to another 50 years with a knowing I will in my heart. Thank you Patricia for helping me get there.
