Diagnosed just before my 51st birthday, February 2015. ER/PR- HER2+ IBC FECT, radical MX and ANC, radiotherapy and cured! Huge thanks to the researchers and scientists behind my treatment. Thankfully, my consultant was on the ball, but IBC support, particularly Caroline Sands were there to make sure my treatment was appropriate and timely.

But then the Bugga returned over the summer of 2017 and spread to lung and abdomen. Initial 6 x 3 weekly Docetaxel (Much less brutal 2nd time around) and ongoing Herceptin and Pertuzamab Has brought me to where I am now.

Been NED for more than 12 months. I look well, feel well, (apart from fatigue and Pertuzamab itch I’m learning to manage.)

Loving life and making memories,

Hope Always, Maddy
