"I live in Oslo, Norway and was diagnosed initially in 2014 with Stage III. Had several rounds of chemo, then in 2015 had a double mastectomy. Three months later the cancer came back. While all this was going on, I fell in love and moved to Norway with my now husband. I was diagnosed with Stage IV in April, started new rounds of hormone and chemotherapy treatments. June to December I was on Taxol, Herceptin and Perjeta; December to February just Herceptin and Perjeta. Three weeks ago I found out the tumors were growing, so now I am back on Taxol weekly and Herceptin and Perjeta every three weeks."
