Ok, just warning you now.. I’m getting ready to go on a rant. A year ago this past September, my Mom was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast cancer. (I know the ‘c’ should be capitalized, but I refuse to show cancer that respect) After a lumpectomy, several rounds of chemo, and radiation she is now cancer free. Thank God! The diagnosis alone is terrifying. Then, you set out to learn as much as possible about this horrible disease. Time and again, when you search ‘Triple Negative’, you will see it described at the ‘DEADLIEST FORM OF BREAST CANCER‘. I used all caps because that’s exactly how it jumps out at you from the page. Ok, we know any form of cancer is potentially deadly. Duh. Yes, Triple Negative is a faster growing type, that leaves the doctors with fewer treatment options.. mainly chemo and radiation.. but it is VERY responsive to both of those things. Granted, it’s a rarer form, and has a higher rate of recurrence, but that is hardly a death sentence. Don’t get me wrong.. I am absolutely not one of those people who wants all bad news coated in a nice layer of sugar.. but really? I wish the people who write these articles would stop and consider the woman who has just been given this diagnosis.. each and every case is different and the last thing you want to see when you set out to learn about this horrible diagnosis is ‘deadliest’.
