Day 357


Just in case you were wondering what Stage One T1CN0 triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma of the left breast with a Ki-67 of 40% will set you back*.  That's $34,717 and change per word of my diagnosis.  Hard to tell if I'm getting a deal here...

To scale this (and also maybe a little bit of a cry out in anger and frustration on my part), I would encourage you to follow a few hashtags such as #triplenegativebreastcancer or #tnbc and see how many women, especially young women (like in their 20's and 30's) are being diagnosed with this special brand of cancer that by the way, gets a very small piece of the cancer research pie and yet has the highest recurrence rate and highest mortality rate of all breast cancers.  

Anyway, do the math and multiply that by the thousands and you get my point.  Someone's getting rich and it's definitely not me. 


0/10 stars.

Do not recommend.
