The Zenna Family:
David, Nancy and Jolie.
The Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation® was founded in 2006 in honor of Nancy Block-Zenna, a young woman who was diagnosed at age 35 with triple negative breast cancer and died 2 1/2 years later in 2007. In response to Nancy's diagnosis, her close friends launched the TNBC Foundation® to raise awareness and support research in the area of triple negative breast cancer.
It was Nancy's hope that, as her daughter Jolie grows older, triple negative breast cancer will no longer be the threat it is today. All of us at the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation® share Nancy's hope. Please join us as we work towards finding better treatment options and, eventually, a cure for this disease.
Our mission is to raise awareness of triple negative breast cancer and to support scientists and researchers in their effort to determine the definitive causes of triple negative breast cancer, so that effective detection, diagnosis, prevention and treatment can be pursued and achieved.
- To ignite interest in the study of triple negative breast cancer among researchers, physicians, educators and scientists
- To support professionals seeking to identify the cause(s) of triple negative breast cancer and to discover new and effective treatment options
- To increase public awareness and support of this subtype of breast cancer
