Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Triple Negative Breast Cancer

At the time of your biopsy or surgery, your doctor looked closely for “receptors” on the breast cancer tissue that was removed. Receptors are a protein that is present on the surface or in the inside of the breast cancer cell. These receptors interacted with something else in your body (most often some type of hormone) and caused the cell to change or grow and make the cancer.

Alabama's Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network

Young women with breast cancer face unique issues. And in the South, there are more young women overall facing breast cancer. In Alabama, young African-American women are significantly more likely to suffer from breast cancer.

That is why SurviveAL is here. Part of the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network, SurviveAL's mission is to help improve the quality of life for young breast cancer survivors, as well as their family and friends, by providing continuing resources and support.
