i am a stage 4 breast cancer patient. rxd in feb 2011. Finished 18 weeks chemo, 1 yr herceptin. I'm 59 a widow (my husband died of a massive heart attack the night of my first chemo treatment, he was gone in a heartbeat) I have 3 grown children, they help when they can 1 lives very close. My last scans showed i was doing remarkably well as the cancer seems to be shrinking. Its the only thing on me that's shrinking i've gained about 10 lbs on the herceptin.
