    Life insurance form

    I had chemo completed in December 2013. I was finished with Herceptin July 2014. I was put on Leterzole, used until December 2018. So forms ask when I finished Cancer treatment. Is it at end of Chemo, Herceptin or Letrozole? Really confused on this. Thanks.

      I am HER2 positive and ER, PR negative. My treatment started in January 2014. I use the date that I was finished with the Herceptin, January 2015.

      It would be the date of last treatment given, whether it be the last pill you took, the last infusion, the last radiation treatment, or whatever. I hope you get your insurance.

      When you finished with Herceptin is your date. The Letrozole is a maintenance drug and doesn't count as active treatment.

      Yup. When in doubt, ask a blood bank how soon you will be allowed to donate. I did, and they told me (at first) five years after completion of treatment; w/in the past year due to blood shortages, for non-immunocompromised persons they revised it to a year. I further asked and they said all adjuvant treatment--including maintenance endocrine therapy--counts as "treatment." Therefore, I would be ineligible to donate until I'd been off letrozole for a year.
