Group Therapy Can Help Women with TNBC

Doctors often pooh-pooh the link between our mental and physical states in terms of cancer.

For example, women with TNBC who were given group therapy lived longer than those who did not--a result that was not found with other breast cancers. Read an overview of the research here.
