Hi ladies, I hope this message finds you all doing well. In regards to the Her/2 gene mets to brain more often than not, I think someone is confused. Breast cancer usually travels to bones, brain, lungs and liver, before going anywhere else as these organs secrete a substance(cannot remember name) that the cancer cells are very attracted to , to use as a food source, that is why you do not see many people with breast mets colon, etc. But even if it does met someplace else, there is always hope. Dont let the phrase the onco utters scare you into not fighting anymore. I am living proof that mets can be kept under control and still have a good quality of life.Faith, laughter and love can heal the biggest hurts, as long as we all keep that in mind, we will beat this Bastard Beast, as one of the other ladies lovingly called it.Fight the good Fight and Fu-k the cancer.
