    July marked my 5th year since my second diagnosis of breast cancer. It's amazing what I've been able to scratch off my bucket list since then. By far the best thing? Holding my first grandchild, a boy, born last December. THANK YOU, makers of Herceptin!

      Wow, this is great news to hear. As an HER2+ person, it is very encouraging. I also am so thankful to the women who were willing to take part in the years of trials to get Herceptin approved. I hate to think of where we would be without it. Keep knocking those items off your bucket list. Your best thing is number one on my list. Don't be a stranger. Take care.

      What a great bunch of responses from my little update. Thanks to all of you! Oh, didn't update you on my costumes...It started when I lost my hair due to chemo. I'd go to my chemo & onc visits w/a goofy wig or hat on. The other chemo patients seemed to get a kick out of it, so it got worse---soon I was making entire costumes just for those occasions! I've done Captain Chemo, Elvis, a cavewoman, an October Breast Cancer awareness costume, a leopard, an old hippie and a woman in a bathrobe with curlers in her hair (wig). The last one didn't go over very well---I think people thought I was serious! But for my October visit this time (1x a year now), I am planning to go as a Ninja! It should be a hit, especially since I am shortish and rather rotundish, LOL. Thanks again, Ladies! Let's keep up the good mojo!

    It sounds like you might be looking for tips? I packed a "chemo" bag filled with crossword puzzles, a blanket, some candy and a book and left it in the hall closet so I could grab it & go to chemo easily.
