Background:
Triple negative breast tumors are a basal-like subtype of breast cancer associated with the poorest clinical outcomes. Typically they are found in younger patients, African-American women, and patients with the BRCA mutation. To date, however, the epidemiology of triple negative breast cancers in a rural, Caucasian population has not been described.
 
 
My note:  This a year old but first time I have seen anything addressed to women in rural areas.  I think there is a huge need to inform those out in the countryside who don't have access to bc information.
 
I have spoke with the ACS, which of course are not here physically offering my support, what can I do and  no one calls me back.  I have also filled out forms saying I would like to help, no reponse.  Sometimes I wonder if these smaller groups  are so spread out among counties that they are poorly run.  It's frustrating.-
