Re: 5 year's out from stage 3 Her2 pos 35 pos nodes

Hi All, Just wanted to tell the new ladies. I am out 4 yrs 7 mos ( but who's counting) from Stage IIIC with 12 pos nodes, blah , blah blah. I am doing great, no problems.
( this after a really dismal prognosis)
Don't beleive the stats, they're outdated ,and much much more women are out there living their lives!!
God Bless.
