Red face Re: Are we Her2 pos lucky with Herceptin?

Gift, I just wrote to you on the other message. Yes, in many ways we are lucky to be Her2+++. Herceptin has save so many womens lives. It is normal to feel down and lonely when you go through cancer and cancer treatment. You have this site now with many other women and a few men who will understand what you are goiing through and how you feel. Drop in often to chat and let us know how you are doing. Best wishes.
