Ok, this is Julie, I sent you a message because I couldn't post, but now I have it figured out.
I'm checking these alternative treatments euromed and issels (put those in the search bar, this blog won't let me put a link) and I also signed up for a clinical trial which has a drug that looks promising Pertuzumab, Trastuzumab and Nab-Paclitaxel for patients like me with Stage 2 ductal carcinoma HER2+
I have read that having traditional treatments first and then trying alternative does significantly lower there effectivness. I am still doing my research on alternative treatments and will make my decision this week. I am forgoing my first chemo treatment tomorrow despite what some of my family thinks, my body my life and I need more time.

The clinical trial I found is call Phase II Prospective Open Label Study of Pertuzumab, Trastuzumab, and Nab-Paclitaxel in Patients with HER-2 Positive Advanced Breast Cancer.
I found this at Clinical Connection, just google that and you can find a lot of trials. Also, you can check Stanford University for ongoing trials.

I have read about avoiding surgery through freezing, called cryoablation and there is a study going on in the US, for women over 60 with single tumor. I did not meet the criteria. Sounds interesting and a lot less damaging. Interesting to see if it actually works

You may want to check Williams Cancer Institute (Dr. Jason Williams).
I had cryoablation with immunotherapy in April 2018. It's too early to determine if it was 100% successful for me but I have spoken to one of his patients who shows no sign of breastcancer with treatment 5 + years ago
April 2019, biopsies determined no evidence of cancer!!!!
