"It is a triple negative."
I had breast cancer in 2015 and had a double mastectomy. It was 2+ and I was taking medicine to block the hormones. Then I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in my liver, limphord, and my lung. It is a triple negative.
I did 3 rounds and then the doctors wanted to do a CT scan to see if it had worked or if I needed a new treatment or if I should continue the treatment I was on.

“Mr. Marcus, you have kidney, lung, and brain cancer. Stage 4. We are going to monitor you for the next 24 hours but there is not much we can do for you here. You need to go home and start making arrangements. At most, you have two years to live.”
I had a red circle on the right side of my breast, and I had lost twenty pounds despite the fact that I was not on a diet. When I went to the doctor their tests couldn’t find anything wrong, so I told them to check out this red spot.
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC). He had a total left nephrectomy on our 35th wedding Anniversary on Sept. 10, 2012. At that time there was no treatment that was available.
