Tens of thousands of women die annually from breast cancer, but soon, the number could decrease. Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville is working on a First Coast News Jacksonvillevaccine for triple negative breast cancer that could someday save millions. While the vaccine is still in clinical trials, doctors say they are very excited because early results indicate it seems to be working with few negative side effects. The problem is, reports show less than 5 percent of adults with cancer enroll in clinical trials or studies.
