Reviews

"Surviving Triple-Negative Breast Cancer is a clear and comprehensive guide, a useful companion to anyone traveling the path of a hormone-negative breast cancer diagnosis. Patricia Prijatel's tone is that of a gentle authority, as one who has made the journey and is living disease-free. Her research is thorough; her perspective, genuine. Although today, there are no targeted therapies, she focuses on current promising possibilities within the patient's control, such as diet modification and weight loss. Patricia shares her valuable knowledge generously, relaying a hopeful message." -- Lori Redmer, Executive Director, Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation "A wonderful blend of memoir, health information, and hope." -- Julie Silver, Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical School, and author of What Helped Get Me Through: Cancer Survivors Share Wisdom and Hope (American Cancer Society) "The voice of a true friend echoes throughout these pages. I congratulate [the author] on a monumental achievement. She has distilled a great deal of information down to a highly readable volume." -- Carol EH Scott-Conner, Professor of Surgery, University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine "With its blending of facts, personal information, and gentle humor, this book will be valuable to anyone diagnosed with breast cancer, whether triple-negative or not." -- Madlyn Ferraro, former network coordinator of cancer clinical trials, Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill "Prijatel's journalistic skills are evident in her fluid prose and the detail with which she lays out the specifics of TNBC . . . She states her goal here is to 'inform, educate, calm, and encourage.' She does so in fine form. Highly recommended." --Library Journal, starred review "This well-written and informative book would certainly benefit anyone whose life has been touched by triple-negative breast cancer. It is written by a journalist who clearly knows how to research information, and she explains the most important messages in terms that readers of most educational backgrounds can understand without overwhelming them." -- Sandra Joy Peacock, University of New Mexico Cancer Center, Doody's
