Yes, there are many breast cancer patients on the board who are HER2+, though not all are over 60. There's the triple positive thread (ER+/PR+/HER2+), as well as a thread for BC patients who are ER-/PR-/HER2+. I wasn't aware of studies showing that the prognosis for HER2+ is not good for women over 60. HER2+ cancer is aggressive, but targeted therapies like Herceptin and Perjeta have meant that BC patients with this diagnosis have improved their long-term survival rates in recent years.
