For all you other ladies some just beginning the journey for some old hat.....for triple negative that 5 year mark is something we keep in our mind at all times. praying that the monster never comes back. It has been challenging. Looking back well, one never knows their true inner strength until it is challenged by something out of our control.

This site was a godsend to me during the early course of my treatment. the support, information encouragement and friendships found here are too numerous to mention, this is a place of healing! thank you all for being there for me and anyone facing the challenge of breast cancer you are surrounded by spirits of the heart brought together by tragedy keep together by faith and great love. God Bless each and everyone of you every day.

I am so glad to hear that. Keep up the positive spirit and I wish you well . I just found out this forum and joined them right away. I also had TNBC, been in remission for 7 months now but my mind is surely a roller coaster; today so happy and lively; the next day, having the negative thought of its recurring and negative thoughts of not winning the battle. So, I keep searching for all good news abt this TNBC and it lights me up. Looking at the positive side.

Each of us found this place for a reason. Some will mark the journey broadly with a wide brush many hearts touched and many connections made, yet like a comet they are here brightly then as quickly gone. But that journey no matter how short, burnt deeply into the lives of everyone they touched. They by their journey and life helped to pave the way to a cure for cancer. Everyone of us, are teachers to others coming behind us...for our children and our children's children, what Doctors and researchers learn by treating our cancers may in time eliminate this monster from the face of the earth.


I am a Cancer survivor but what I am more is a teacher, supporter and guide for all who may have to follow the same path one day that I did God forbid.


I use to worry everyday that the Cancer was going to come back, it robbed me of two years of joy and life. At that moment I accepted Gods will.....but was sure hoping Gods will and mine were on the same page. But also accepting if it was not on the same page I can accept that and just live as much life as I can while I am here.

Wow did that free up the worry and stress. Knowing I did not have to carry the weight of that worry allowed me to see the beauty in life even on days when the view was the inside of a toilet bowl some days


Every day is a gift. Cancer opened my eyes to the truth. Those who face death and live accept death but live life with a greater appreciation for what it offers us....even on the worst of days. God bless you all.
