Hello, I was dx in February with Her2+ BC. I went through the chemo, the mastectomy and now in the midst of radiation. I will finish that in December and will be on the Herceptin through March. 

I, like so many BC survivors, have a constant fear of metastisis. I can't shake it. I think what I need is to read stories of those with my type of BC that have survived for years with no recurrence. Please share your stories with those of us that are still in treatment or just finishing that are scared.

Thanks!

Today is my three year “cancer-versary”! I’m doing really well and am now at the point where my mind doesn’t jump to cancer when I have an ache or a pain. I remind myself that I am getting older (which, in itself is a gift!) and so I’m going to get older people conditions. My life is really good too. I’m working, I’ve joined a dragonboat team, I’m in good shape (finally!) and I have two beautiful granddaughters to keep me young. Those were some dark days in the beginning and, without going in to detail, there were mistakes made. But I’m here and I now try to enjoy each day as it comes. It took a lot of therapy and some meds to get me here but I’m hoping for many more years. Her2+ feels scary as does HR-. But it can be done! Best of luck to those who are just starting this journey. It does get better!

Hello ladies

Just like tessu was diagnosed in August 2015 and we started our chemo September 2015. Six years survivor, still here, still NED and now I am having regular yearly mammograms like the general population.


Hugs and more hugs to all
