There is a need to practically redefine the future way of life, among numerous patients with breast cancer (BC). In fact, spirituality, hope, and gratitude may play a remarkable role in a possible transformation into a “new life”. Also, these invisible, positive “forces” recognize patients as individual human beings, which should be connected with their families, caregivers, friends, and medical professionals, as functional “units”. This chapter provides some suggestions for practical approaches to help design a functional “new life”, especially for women with aggressive BC (e.g., triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC)). In addition, medical care teams may consider incorporating such supportive modalities into the main therapeutic oncology plan.
