DCIS and IDC and HER2+

Recently diagnosed with DCIS and IDC and have now been dealt the HER2+ blow. I am having a mastectomy on the 17th with immediate dflap (?) reconstruction. Naively thought that might be it but now because of the HER2 will need chemo. I am devastated and would just like to connect with people with or who have had this.
