While the future of research is promising, dealing with the uncertainty while you wait can be difficult. For people with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), the lack of access to targeted therapy not only influences your medical treatment but also your ability to communicate about and cope with the disease.

Join Living Beyond Breast Cancer and Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation to explore how, in the future, targeted therapies will change the experience of TNBC—from a “one size fits all” approach to one that accounts for the diversity of medical, emotional and practical needs of people with this diagnosis.

You can attend this free event in person or participate via live Web stream. The educational program will begin at 6:00 p.m. (ET). For those attending in person, registration and refreshments will begin at 5:30 p.m. (ET).

This interactive event will feature a panel discussion followed by a Q&A session. Both in person and Web stream audiences will be able to text their questions to the moderator during the Q&A session.
