Re:Updates on Triple Negative Research - Friday, September 10, 2010 5:17 AM
Deborah,
My last IV round of chemo included Gemzar, the drug in the study. My onc added Avastin & Taxol (the cancer is metastastic) for the tumors and I did quite well. The Gemzar's only side effect was hair loss (the other 2 drugs were another story!) I now am on chemo vacation, taking only Xeloda for maintenance.
Though the Gemzar worked, my onc does not think it's a total cure, and I still am looking at chemo on and off.
You can get anywhere in life you choose, as long as you wear red high top shoes.

return trip, triple neg (by med terms only - triple positive in attitude), 17 nodes and gaining, clinical trial pro, and too darn mean to let it win (hence the nickname Mean Jolene)!

Living Beyond Breast Cancer's conference (Philadelphia/November 2010) has a workshop on Triple Negative.  I'm going....if anyone else is...let me know!

Thanks for all the links from everyone...I realize some are quite old...but I was a bit overwhelmed dealing with the immediate...now I'm taking the time to learn more about Triple Negative!
