Facing Triple Negative Breast Cancer

With a strong family history of breast cancer, Linda knew she was at a high risk of getting the disease. So, Linda went on the offense, taking difficult steps to reduce her breast cancer risk. But even after these dramatic precautions, Linda still received a shocking diagnosis – triple negative breast cancer. A fighter by nature, Linda stood up to her cancer and inspired others to do the same.

Patient & Family Support

We understand that cancer care can affect the whole family. We offer an array of support services for patients and their families. This includes individualized care to manage the symptoms and side effects of cancer treatment as well as case management, social work services, support groups, and access to the Fox Chase Resource and Education Center. 

The Patient and Family Advisory Council

PFAC is a voice not only for patients who have received cancer treatment at Fox Chase Cancer Center, but their family members as well.

The council  serves as a resource to the health care team, providing the patient and family perspective on a wide variety of patient-related and research issues, including patient safety, staff engagement, program planning, services and policies.
