Hi gimlet, so sorry about your mom. Ihad been diagnosed this year at 65 with triple neg bc. Chemo first before surgery was recco because of trip neg is so sensitive. After dose dense chemo trot every two weeks first with taxol 4 cycles and then 4 cycles with ac. Even b4 surgery was declared cancer free and then verified by the surgeon after the op but am still going thru radiation. Chemo is the way to go b4 surgery in my experience. P.s. The tumor "melted" within the first three doses, it was hard for me to find. My prayers with you. My daughter put her life on hold for six mos to help me thru the chemo. Love
