    Not at all. Triple negative is just one of three ways to identify a tumor and help determine your menu of treatment options. It means this tumor type tests negative for hormone receptors and HER-2. It is a way to pinpoint your cancer's "fingerprint" and personalize your treatment options.

    No, and don't google it bc all of the info is years old and treatments are better now! Mine was TN, but chemo kicked its butt, now I'm cancer free after surgery, and radiation is the last phase just in case. My surgeon (one of the best in country) said he'd be very surprised if it ever came back after I asked about how i read that triple neg rumors are more likely to recur. Best wishes. You can beat this!

      THANK YOU! I am just starting this journey and I'm hungry for positive answers. I am a firm believer in prayer and the power of positive thinking. I've got the prayer part down pat and have recruited a veritable ARMY of prayer warriors. But, some days, the positive thinking starts to wane...like today.

    Tripple Negative is a more agressive cancer yes but this does not mean a death sentence. You must fight this cancer just like any other cancer and fight to stay strong and focus on your the next day and days to come. Cancer is cancer. No one should look at it as being a death sentence!
