A few weeks ago, I read on this board about a movie called "Living Proof". It is based on a true story on how the drug "Herceptin" came to be and how it helps treat thousands of women each year with breast cancer. I immediately purchased this DVD on EBAY for less than $8. Since I am on Herceptin (until May 2012), it gave me an extremely positive outlook regarding this treatment.

For women on Herceptin, I can't recommend this movie HIGHLY enough. In fact, I am bringing it to my oncologist office and suggesting he let all the women receiving Herceptin view this movie.

Did anyone else view this movie?

    Herceptin Movie
    Yes, I saw this movie in October. My Cable providor, Comcast/Xfinity offered a Pink Ribbon selection of shows, advice and this movie. I clicked on it quite by chance. I am Herceptin Pos. and found it fascinating. I had no idea it was such a struggle to bring this drug to market. Thank you Dr. Slamon. Thanks also to the lady worked tirelessly to raise money, thanks to Revlon Foundation for their contribution at a critical time of development. Thanks also to Dr. Slamon's family and for their understanding and to all those brave women who participated in the study. This was probably the greatest step forward in the treament of breast cancer in the last 20 years.

    I am Grateful
    I saw the movie. You know... my oncologist was involved in the research done at UCLA with Dr. Solomen( not sure of spelling). I am very fortunate to have Dr. David Chan as my oncologist. He is, without a doubt, a Rock Star! Yes, I tested positive for HER2.

    I mentioned the movie to my oncologist. At my next visit she had watched it and was impressed with how well it was done! She said she usually found fault with medical movies, but she liked "Living Proof"
