16 yrs from stage IIIc dx

Hi all , just wanted to let those who are fearful about HER 2 BC that I am still here and NED I had absolutely awful “poor” prognosticators. Back in 2005 and I made it through and have been living in profound gratitude and good health.
I wish you all the best!

CONGRATULATIONS LINDA!!!

That is truly inspiring and encouraging to me and I am sure to others. I love where you say you live in "profound gratitude and good health." An attitude of gratitude can lift any spirit.

Wishing you many, many years of thriving and surviving!

Congratulations! You give us so much hope. I was diagnosed her2 positive, hormones negative stage 2a, no nodes involved on March 2020. I have just finished my therapies with herceptin and perjeta and I am little anxious for reoccurence so your post gives me so much hope. Thank you! I had DD EC chemo x4 and THP (taxol , herceptin and perjeta) x4 like you! I wish I ll be so lucky and be without reoccurence for many many years!
