My daughter was 23 when she was first diagnosed with HER2 negative breast cancer in Nov of 2018. Had a lumpectomy right away, followed 4 rounds of chemo and 30+ rounds of radiation. Then in April of this year 2021 she was diagnosed with HER2 positive, same breast, different area, and a bone biopsy determined it's stage 4 cancer. She's having chemo #6 next week (in addition to the immunotherapy – herceptin/projetta). We do not have a history of breast cancer in my family, and her genetic markers are negative for the breast cancer gene. It's really terrible, I wish so much this wasn't happening to her.

My heart goes out to you. My daughter was diagnosed in February age (42) with HER negative, ER/PR +. She decided on a double mastectomy with reconstruction. As a mother it is so hard to accept that your "baby girl" has to go through this. I read all the time about breast cancer and treatments to educate myself so I can feel more in control. It helps me cope. I have learned through all the reading that there is hope with all the treatments available. Everyone is different and there are miracles out there too! Keep the faith and I will pray for you mama. It's hard.
