Orange is the New Pink: My Battle with Triple-Negative Breast Cancer (Paperback)
Do you think about your risk for getting breast cancer?
If you are a female with breasts or love someone with breasts, this book is for you. According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 8 (12%) women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. In 2019, it is estimated that 331,530 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States, and approximately 2 million women, worldwide.
Breast cancer is NOT one disease. Triple-Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) is an extremely aggressive form of breast cancer. A lot of women survive TNBC, and research is ongoing. Triple-Negative breast cancer patients should have FAITH and HOPE for a positive outcome.
TNBC showed up in my life like a meteor from out of space. I am a seven-year survivor. Orange is the New Pink: My Battle With Triple-Negative Breast Cancer is a deeply personal story. I've combined humor and solid academic research to share:
- My journey to survival which involved shock, sadness, fear, laughter, grief, cancer treatment, sexuality, body image sadness, rage, peace, love, forgiveness, risks, hope, triumph, God, family, friends, neighbors, my ex-husband, and wonderful medical professionals.
- The need for targeted treatments for early stage triple-negative disease.
- The importance of understanding and managing your individual breast cancer risk factors.
- The importance of being your own advocate whether it is for prevention or treatment of breast cancer.
