Different Types of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer affecting women in the United States, with 1 in 3 women receiving a diagnosis at some point in their life. With advancements in modern technology, we have been able to detect several subtypes of breast cancer, including:

  • Inflammatory breast cancer
  • Triple-negative breast cancer
  • Triple positive breast cancer
  • HER2+ breast cancer
  • Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is one of the most common types of breast cancer. Classified as stage 0 breast cancer, DCIS is pre-invasive, meaning the cancer cells have yet to spread into other tissue.
  • Metastatic breast cancer is another common type of breast cancer is Metastatic Breast Cancer, and unlike DCIS, it is classified as stage 4. Meaning the cancer has spread beyond the breast tissue and into other areas of the body. 

Understanding these different types of breast cancer is crucial for personalized support and treatment plans. Our Texas breast cancer support network is here to provide guidance and empathy, no matter the subtype you are facing. Join us today to connect with survivors who can relate to your unique breast cancer journey. Together, we can face breast cancer with strength and resilience.

Claudette and I continue in stay in touch and we hope to meet for lunch when I am feeling better. I have already referred a friend to CanCare. She is about to have a double masectomy.

Ron & Ina

Client
volunteer
"One morning while in Houston Methodist Hospital for transplant, a CanCare volunteer knocked on the door. He sat and shared with Ron and Ina about his time not just in the same hospital, but in the very same room as Ron! That day they found a new best friend in this CanCare volunteer. Ron and Ina both took a deep breath, seeing a survivor walking and sharing his story and listening to theirs. It was uplifting for both and gave them a sense of hope."

Lynn

Client

"The fact that CanCare screens and trains their volunteers and that they can match a request from a patient or caregiver looking for support within 48 hours brings me so much peace. Cancer can be a serious problem and if I can be a part of helping someone’s cancer experience be a little bit easier or lighter, I feel like my own cancer had a purpose."

Berit

Client

"The service CanCare provides in any community cannot be measured in hours or number of people affected. The goodness that pours out from volunteers and staff is so far reaching. It is not only the client who benefits by the support, but the client’s family can see the good it does for their loved one."

Larry

Client
volunteer
"She was in a wheelchair and had just recently been diagnosed. She was slumped down in her wheelchair looking like she had lost her last friend. I introduced myself and told her that I was a stage 4 tongue cancer survivor. She got a big smile on her face, straightened up in her wheelchair, and asked, ”YOU ARE?” She was surprised. It was obvious I made a big impact on her but what she didn’t realize was how big an impact she made on me."

Ricardo

Client
volunteer
"I was very thankful that he took the time to visit patients goung through a rough time like myself. It made me feel like there was hope and that if he made, I could too."

Maria

Client

"As a client of CanCare and as a caregiver, I felt witnessed and heard. My CanCare mentor-volunteer was actually an ovarian cancer survivor. Usually, CanCare ensures cancer patients are matched up with survivors and caregivers are matched with caregivers. I am grateful to this day for CanCare’s creativity in pairing up a volunteer survivor with a caregiver client." ...

Iris

Client

"Her desire to 'give back' became stronger after she completed her treatment. Iris wanted to be available to other women who had just received news of their diagnosis. She wanted to offer hope and be a support to them."

Lauren

Client

"CanCare was instrumental in helping me discover how to walk side-by-side with my sister through her health event."

Teresa

Client
volunteer
Working as a volunteer at my local hospital by offering emotional support has been a life-changing experience. I started my journey at North Cypress thinking that offering my “help” to cancer patients would be my way of giving back to the community and serve others that are just beginning their journey; however, I had no idea the blessings the Lord would put in front of me while I shared my story and reached out to give them hope. This is not a story of how I helped cancer patients; this is a story of how they helped me!!

Valerie

Client
volunteer
"I contacted CanCare and spoke to a woman who had faced and won the battle I was fighting. I felt so uplifted and re-energized to continue fighting and accept what was happening."

Peyton

Client
volunteer
"I am a proud supporter of CanCare! Without CanCare, I think I could still be searching for someone that understands my specific challenges and perhaps would still be struggling with how to move forward."

Kenny

Client
volunteer
"I now have one CanCare client that had cancer in his tonsils just like I did. When we spoke the first time, he helped me as much as I helped him. It felt good and also reminded me what I endured and overcame. CanCare keeps me focused on my health and giving back to others. Giving back is a great reward."

Tim

Client
volunteer
On one of my “lower days” during my fight to prostate cancer, a customer of my business stopped by to solicit a donation for her child’s school fundraiser. I apologized to her for my lack of energy(we had already canceled the meeting once before) as I had just returned from a radiation session. Well, at that point the entire conversation changed. She shared with me her own cancer story. And also the role that CanCare played in helping her cope with the challenges she faced.
