Would love to join the call but i am at work. Hope you are on the call and will post a little summary of what was said!

Jojo: Don't you love the amount of notice I gave you on this one? Sorry for that--somehow my week disappeared. And, yes, I was on the call and it was quite good. They will soon post a podcast on their site as well as a transcript, so I will wait for that for accuracy. The overall message, though, is that there is MUCH research being done on TNBC and that this disease is survivable.
