Re: What is measurement date for 5 yr mark?

Thanks everybody for your responses. No wonder I wasn't sure what the measurement date to use!. I asked my onc the other day and she said it was date of diagnosis. It seems that there isn't a definite date that is always used. Us HER2 folks are never completely "out of the woods" but I like Lizbeth's idea of celebrating each milestone along the way.

Take care
