About this movie

Top-rated Lifetime movie! Dr. Dennis Slamon has reached a breakthrough in his career. He has helped to develop a new experimental drug called Herceptin, which he hopes will become a revolutionary treatment in the fight against breast cancer. However, when funding for his project is cut, Slamon must turn to philanthropists Lilly Tartikoff and Ron Perelman to help make his life's most important work a reality. With the backing of his new supporters, Slamon continues to perfect his treatment, but his new drug proves that while it has the ability to give life, it does not work for everyone. This gut-wrenching true story explores one doctor's difficult struggle to find a cancer treatment that can save thousands of lives while giving meaning to his own life. 2008 Sony Pictures Television Inc.

Dr. Dennis Slamon saved my life 6 years ago. He is my patron saint. I want to show up in a large group of survivors in front of his house and lay a $5000.00 bouquet on his front lawn. I want to cover his house in flowers. I want to do the same for Lily Tartikov who raised the money to convince Genentech to do the trials. Thank you Dr Slamon from the bottom of my heart. 20% of breast cancers are HER2. One in 8 women will have breast cancer. For us this is Mandatory Crying/Watching. I will rent this every year on the anniversary of the day I saw the shape of the lump, fully dressed, in the mirror. My dear dear friend, Jocelyne: tomorrow at your place we dance. Gloria Gaynor on the speakers. You will survive my friend. I promise.
