Good Morning Everyone! I hope you won’t read this and think… blah, blah, blah, she writes about this all of the time, but Breast Cancer Awareness month is important to me! Especially getting the word out about Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I was in the country side in Tuscany on Saturday, and met a woman who is a 23 year survivor of TNBC. She told me that when she was diagnosed, there wasn’t even the name Triple Negative. Still, 24 years later, there is still not much known about this type of breast cancer.
If you have read my blog on a regular basis, you know that TNBC is a very aggressive breast cancer. When people ask me what kind I have, and I answer, the reaction is always the same. Either they have never heard of it, or they look at me with a sad face and say,”oh, the bad kind”. Well, no shit Sherlock! They all are bad in my opinion, but we, who are dealt, “the bad kind” need some answers!
That’s where Breast Cancer Awareness month comes in. For me, the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation is now my passion. I am on the older side of being diagnosed with this nasty disease, because so many women in their 20’s and 30’s are being diagnosed every day. Many of these young women are pregnant having to go through the trauma of breast cancer. Please do me a favor…if you don’t check yourself, please start doing so! It doesn’t matter if you are in your early 20’s, just do it. Go to the doctor if anything seems amiss. It’s all about knowledge and having the power to do something about it!
So, what does” Chic at Every Age ” have to do with Triple Negative Breast Cancer? Well, if you don’t know, the rainwear line above called SHE REIGNS, is the creation of moi. I put it on the back burner when I was diagnosed last year. I am relaunching by giving 25% of the sale proceeds of the coats to the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation. Also, we have reduced the price of the coats by 25% for the month of October. The coats are made of a light weight microfiber right here in the USA. All four styles have a large hood and pockets, and come in several different colors per style. If you need a really cute and stylish raincoat, please consider purchasing one for TNBC.
