HER-2 RX: Go to the University of San Fransisco Medical Center: they will have expert physicians to advise you, and most university hospitals can arrange payment plans which fit your budget. It is very important to have expert advise for any form of breast cancer to have the very best chance for long term survival, so do not delay.
