Thanks for posting this. I saw it on my livestrong facebook link and just spent a few minutes at work reading about her. Very inspiring.

I was very down on Monday after reading about Laura Ziskin's passing. It's great to know that Noreen is here to continue the fight. Do you know if she's HER-2+? One link I read mentioned that Slalon was one of her doctors.

Noreen has never mentioned about Herceptin or being Her2 positive in the news clippings I've located. She did mention Tamoxifen and has been on chemo the past 10 years, so I'd assume she's ER positive.

Laura Ziskin was introduced to Dr. Slamon, so I'd assume that her bc is Her2 positive:
