Seminars on breast cancer vaccines at UW Seattle

If you have any interest in exploring a breast cancer vaccine I highly recommend these sessions:

https://www.uwcvi.org/post/cancer-va...ancer-vaccines

(UW is where I received my vaccine and I can not recommend them enough!)

2022 On Herceptin and NED continues - WOOT WOOT!

Re: Seminars on breast cancer vaccines at UW Seattle

Hi Laura - the link will be emailed out later today.
It is good to see your name - I always feel like I am coming “home” when I visit this site. (I also sent you an email!)

Re: Seminars on breast cancer vaccines at UW Seattle

Thanks for posting this! I participated in their trial in 2011 and am still NED. I didn’t realize they had a booster so if I have a recurrence I’ll definitely contact them.

I registered for sessions and am sharing the info with others.

Re: Seminars on breast cancer vaccines at UW Seattle

Hi Mel3,
You are a vaccine “alumni” as well - and you are still NED, that’s great! I wonder how many of us on this site are UW vaccine alum?
I too signed up for a couple of sessions, (one is on my wedding anniversary 43 years…not sure if I will attend that one but signed up anyway…!)


PS I don’t know if you met or remember Doreen in the UW cancer vaccine program but she retired last month.

Re: Seminars on breast cancer vaccines at UW Seattle

Hi Mamacze,

Congratulations on 43 years years of marriage and NED!

I found out about the vaccine trial on this site so perhaps it was from you and a few others. Thank you! ❤️

I remember Doreen and hope she is enjoying her retirement!
