Home / HER2 - Breast cancer under 40

On my wife, Anna's, 37th birthday, she found a lump on her breast. One week later she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her cancer type is Her2 - an aggressive form that has a higher chance of recurrence and mortality. Following her doctors' recommendations, she underwent a lumpectomy, chemotherapy, radiation and estrogen blocking medication that will likely put her into early menopause. We are documenting this process to raise awareness about breast cancer under 40 and to help ourselves deal with this experience.
