Triple negative breast cancer is a disease that keeps giving. Even when one battle ends, another may begin at any time. If you know someone with breast cancer, please offer a helping hand. The emotional, physical, and life toll it can take on an entire family is tremendous. If you are a survivor, please don't forget about those who still need YOU. Your friends, your family, patients, neighbors. Cancer may have changed your life in many ways, but it does not define who you are unless you let it.
And so now we hear that Robin Roberts is facing a new challenge in her life. After surviving triple negative breast cancer, she has now been diagnosed with a bone marrow disease. She is under going a "pre-treatment" of sorts to gear up for blood transfusions that will help her. This woman is a rock. She was one of the very first people I recall looking up with TNBC. Reading her story helped calm the storm that raged fear within me. I was terrified and reading her journey quieted that fear, some.
Learning of her illness makes my stomach do flip flops for her, because I know she will have to undergo that dreaded red - or green - devil again, but she is a tough cookie. I read what she had to say about her diagnosis and just like Robin, she is completely positive that her outcome is good. Some TNs might wonder what is to come for them, too. Don't worry about tomorrow, we can only control what we have today.
That being that case, I am positive that I will be praying for mercy and intervention on her behalf. Please, won't you pray for this woman who has come into homes every day with a smile and a story to brighten the lives of millions around the world.
Have a blessed week all. Hugs.
