hope everybody is doing well!
lettinggo: ctc is circulating tumor cell test. mainly used in adjuvant setting to measure the response of circulating cells after every chemo session. its still in research phase.
we do hear of breast cancer survivors but now that we know that bc is not one disease but a family of various diseases and among them tnbc is the most aggressive with the highest recurrence rates, i really wanted to know how many of us know tnbc survivors in particular.
ally: thank you so much for posting about your aunt. so good to hear that she is a 30 year survivor. but then how did she find out later that her tumor was tnbc..30 years ago i believe even chemo wasnt given and they didnt have too much idea about the biology of breast cancers. how is your treatment going on? you sure have an inspiration at home!
