One life to live

We had a whole day remote team meeting (there are six Finns, two French and one Indian team members in our project management team). Then I drove to the hospital and got 12/14 Herceptin injection. It is injected to the upper, outer part of leg and the injection takes about 2 to 5 minutes.  Leg is changed in each time.

Herceptin (trastuzumab) is a targeted cancer drug which arrived to Finland 10 years ago. Before that, 15% of HER2+ breast cancer patients were alive after 5 years of their diagnosis. With Herceptin treatment, 90% of HER2+ breast cancer patients were alive after 5 years of their diagnosis. In addition, probability to recurrence of cancer diminishes 30-40 %. I'm very happy I didn't get this cancer 11 years ago :)
