diagnosed with triple negative BC
« on: December 02, 2020, 12:08:57 pm »

I am currently undergoing treatment for TNBC. I've been on a combination of Keytruda and chemotherapy and one of the worst things has been feeling alone and misunderstood. Most people know about metastatic BC but I feel like TNBC is largely forgotten. Would really appreciate some tips for finding community during this tough time. Esp with COVID-19 I have been feeling very lonely. I have a supportive husband, but my kids are grown up with their own kids and live across the country, so it's hard to feel so disconnected. thanks :)

Hi Katie. Thanks for joining the Cancer Health Forums.

COVID has definitely made everything tougher and living with cancer is high among them.

Cancer Health has a list of Breast Cancer Support Groups on the site. You can find it here:  https://www.cancerhealth.com/basics/health-basics/breast-cancer-support-groups

Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation speficially says it has support groups so that's a good place to start.
