Just a few statistics about my cancer. I find it interesting, so I thought you might too.
About 1 in 8 women living in America will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their life time (12%). [source]
The average risk of a woman being diagnosed before age 40 is less than 1% (about 1 in 227). [source]
Approximately 15-20% of breast cancer diagnoses are Triple Negative, like mine. African American women are 3 times more likely to get TNBC than Caucasian or Hispanic women. [source]
Since I'm on a streak with small probabilities, I've decided to start playing the lottery.
