"Advocating for my health as a black woman with triple negative breast cancer means considering clinical trials. Here are key questions to ask your doctor: 

1. Are there any clinical trials available for my specific type of cancer?

2. How might participating in a clinical trial benefit me?

3. Are there any potential risks or side effects I should be aware of?

4. Will my insurance cover the costs associated with the trial?

5. How can I find more information about clinical trials for black and brown women?

before cancer.....

Before my breast cancer diagnosis, I was incredibly shallow. I was obsessed with my appearance and always striving to live up to the model image I had created for myself. I even dreamed of posing for Playboy one day. But after a double mastectomy, I am now so self-conscious that I can hardly recognize myself. It took me almost a month to look down at my chest after the surgery. I cried and cried for hours in the bathroom, wondering how this could be happening to me. I had always been so confident in my body, and now I felt like a stranger in my own skin. As a mother, I struggled with how to teach my daughter to be confident when I was struggling so much myself. How could I tell her to love herself when I didn't even recognize myself anymore? I was grateful for my surgeon's skilled hands and for getting the cancer out, but I hated the results. When people say that a mastectomy is not a boob job, they are right. The scars and the fact that I will never have sensation again at 34
