Triple Negative Breast Cancer
Years of Survivorship: 1 Year
I am a 39 year old married, mom of three. I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in February of 2016. I had been exercising and I felt a soreness that didn’t seem to go along with exercise. I promptly went upstairs and began checking my breast and that is when I found the lump. Cancer has served as a lens from which I have found my focus in life. The things that used to weigh me down no longer do and the simple things that I have taken for granted, I try really hard not to anymore. Cancer has also shown me what love in action looks like and it has restored my faith in humanity.

By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
