Jennifer Griffin survives war zone reporting - and breast cancer

Jennifer Griffin has been reporting along enemy lines for Fox News for years now, but the war correspondent recently took on the most difficult task of her life - breast cancer.

The esteemed journalist was diagnosed with stage three of the disease late last year, at the age of 40. Since then she has been candidly blogging about her journey fighting the illness.

"I've put on body armor before and covered stories," Griffin told Oprah.com. "I never thought the greatest danger to my life would come from inside of me."

Griffin underwent 17 rounds of chemotherapy and took an experimental drug used to treat colon cancer. Now, the vivacious workaholic can claim she is cancer-free.

Still, Griffin admits she is lucky, as triple negative breast cancer is one of the most dangerous forms of the disease.

"It's the kind of cancer that grows in between mammograms," she told the news outlet.

According to BreastCancer.org, 15 to 20 percent of breast cancer patients will be diagnosed with triple-negative.ADNFCR-2795-ID-19791118-ADNFCR
