Triple Negative Breast Cancer – Did you know?
Although breast cancer is often referred to as one disease, there are actually many different types of breast cancer. Triple negative breast cancers are estrogen receptor-negative, progesterone receptor-negative and HER2-negative. About 15-20 percent of all breast cancers in the United States are TNBC. These tumors tend to occur more often in younger women and African-American women. We do understand some aspects of these breast cancers, however we still have much to learn.
That is why Komen has funded more than $80 million in TNBC research.
It’s not the same without you!
