    Sorry ladies it must of been Grade 4 , its been 3 years now, l think l was in a lot off shock when l first found out, As we all are. its alot to take in when your first told you have breast cancer. And then too find out its TNBC. It wasnt anywhere else in my body thank god. And it wasnt in my lymph nodes. l was told l had a cryst, And l was left for 5 mths. My lump was so large by the time it was removed. But l was very lucky it hadnt spread. l didnt do Chemo, Because off other health problems. My doctors dont know off anyone that has made this choice, So they cant tell me what my future holds. But its been 3 years so far and as far as l know, lm still cancer free. My prays go out too you's women. Your in my thoughts. Stay strong and Positive.
