My Experience With Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Satisfactory Essays
An experience that has had a big impact on me was in 2010 when my mother was diagnosed with stage three triple-negative breast cancer. Triple-negative breast cancer is an extremely rare and aggressive cancer. It can't be easily treat because there are no hormone receptors that trigger growth or stop growth of the cancer. Doctor have to try every known treatment and hope that it would work. During seeing my mother have to go through all the surgeries and treatment it changed my view on the medical field. I once saw the medical flied as gross and now see it as interesting and life-changing. After see how all the surgeons and doctor changed my mothers life and saved her it has made me want to be one of them.
