I have officially launched my online "Hope for more Tomorrows" fundraising campaign for TNBC Day!

My name is Melissa Paskvan and am a 4yr. TNBC survivor and also representing our online TNBC support groups as we unite together to raise funds for the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation for continued research in hope of finding our targeted therapy. Our support group, we are never just one alone... The fears, the tears, the stress, the anxiety, the worry, and the pain are shared among all of us women in our group. We are an unique Sisterhood that are bonded by our uncommon disease, and we fight together until all us sisters are safe.
Triple Negative Breast Cancer Day, 3.3.14, is the only national event solely devoted to raising both awareness of TNBC and funds that provide critical support for those affected by the disease. While significant progress has been made in breast cancer research, there is shockingly little known about triple negative cancers, even though they impact up to 1in 5 women diagnosed with breast cancer. TNBC does not have any of the known treatment receptors — meaning that many of the advances in breast cancer treatment don't work for women diagnosed with TNBC. TNBC tends to be more aggressive, more likely to recur, and more difficult to treat because there is no targeted treatment. TNBC disproportionately strikes younger women, women of African, Latina or Caribbean descent, and those with BRCA1 mutations.
