Triple-stars for the TNBC Foundation website and forum!!  It's been an invaluable resource for me during this unwanted journey.  The forum has been absolutely incredible. I really don't know what I would be doing without it - and these amazing warrior women I have had the pleasure in "e-meeting."  The website is also filled with insightful tools and patient-friendly.  I am also grateful for the suggested questions to ask all of your doctors - they have been enlightening, educational and much-needed.

The TNBC Foundation helped me in 2010 when I was diagnosed with it & the valuable information & support I received helped me immensely. Thank you for all your support.

When I first went to the doctor and received the dx of TNBC, I was so scared and drove home crying.  Everything that made me happy also made me sad.  I felt that I couldn't talk to anyone about what I was going through because they wouldn't understand so I told very few people I had it.  But being so scared with no one to talk to, I found this site and everyone's insight and comforting posts made accepting my cancer much easier.  Everyone's support made me a much stronger person with the will to fight.

TNBCF has been a great source of community, compassion, and comraderie, as well as a place to give back by being there for others in their time of need.

TNBC reminds me I am not alone.... even though feeling far away.  And that I have friends out there who really do understand where I am at now.   And where I would like to be in the future   NED!
