congrats Nevo and thank you for posting. I am triple positive so hormone positive as opposite to your moms. I do not know really the impact of that difference. But we both are her2positive. Every time I see a Her2positive long term survivor story, I gives me hope.

Merry Christmas and Brighter 2021 to all of us ladies. May we all stay healthy and well for many many years to come.

Arc66, I believe the thread is a congratulations for anyone who is still alive and kicking after 5 years, so you definitely 'qualify'!

This just popped up on active topics so I thought I'd post. I hit my five years since diagnosis on August 29th. With my lousy pathology (five kinds of cancer spread across seven tumors in both breasts) I wasn't sure I'd make it this far.

Yet here I am. Kinda battered, forever changed, but still here. Hopefully for a very long time.
