Welcome! - Friday, February 27, 2009 9:21 PM
Welcome to the Triple Negative (TN) forum. This forum was created by (thank you Sadie!) and for women with Triple Negative BC. This means that our cancers are ER/PR/HER2 negative. Our BC is different than the majority of BC's and has a unique treatment path and different survival statistics. The women on this forum are here to support each other AND to assist women who are newly diagnosed with TN BC. (We also welcome women with other types of BC who want to understand this type of cancer in order to better support those of us with TN BC.)
