Welcome to HER2 Support Group


We are patients, caregivers, mothers, daughters, sons and husbands of breast cancer survivors who are HER2 positive. We gather here to seek information about the illness. Here you will find newly diagnosed patients and long term survivors willing to share their experiences and knowledge.


We celebrate our succssses and share our failures. When this website was launched on December 24th 2001, the breast cancer patient who was HER2 positive was pitied as the only thing that their oncologist told them was "your cancer is agressive and your prognosis is poor". Recent advances in treatment has reversed this outlook and now we live longer and enjoy a much better quality of life than ever before.
