Celebrating 15 years

Just checking in to say how grateful I am to be 15 years out form my stage 2b BC DX in 2006. I am thankful for the great doctors I had and the treatment plan they designed for me. When I was up at night and scared back then, I checked in on our Her2 site and found support that calmed my fears. Thank you to those who have been so supportive to so many of us over the years. My love and support to our friends that are in treatment now and/or on maintenance programs. I hope this site goes on forever as a place to find help, comfort and love❤️

Re: Celebrating 15 years

Becky, thank you for your good wishes. I just reread your “your profile.” I can’t believe that you and I, plus a few others have been on the Her2 site so long. Wishing you a great summer and many more years of good health😍
