Scoobydoo's Story: Staying Strong After a Triple Negative Diagnosis

Diagnosed in 2009, Scoobydoo is living with TNBC.
 

Scoobydoo is a member of the Breastcancer.org Community.

I was diagnosed with Triple Neg in June of 2009. Had lumpectomy and chemo, then radiation. Three years later I was diagnosed with melanoma right in the location of my radiation therapy. Happy to say that eight years out I am still NED!!!! I feel great. Chemo threw me into early menopause and caused my thyroid to go bonkers. Other than that all is well. Triple negative is not a death sentence. Many of us ladies are thriving after diagnosis. Stay strong ladies!
