BUT, in the middle of the release is this utterly outrageous sentence:
Triple negatives are the worst breast cancers: they have the highest rates of metastasis, worst prognosis, and no targeted treatments.My edit
Triple negative breast cancer can be more aggressive than hormone-positive cancer, but it responds well to chemotherapy. Metastatic TNBC so far has no targeted treatment.Later in the release, they call TNBC "this most dreaded form of breast cancer."
I am livid! This is irresponsible and wrong. I was diagnosed in June 2006, 13.5 years ago. I had a second cancer in June 2015, 4.5 years ago. I'm doing fine. I didn't like the experience, but I survived, as do most women with TNBC.
