    It's been over a month and a half since they found the cancer but I haven't had one bit of chemo yet. All I've been doing is struggling with effed up receptionists who even question the doctor on 'how things work.'. I'm getting really tired of it because everyone blames me. I feel like I'm all on my own.

    Cytotoxic treatments like chemo only increase 5 year survival rates by 2.3%
    The cancer then hides in fat cells(correct me if I'm wrong) and reestablishes itself after a few years.
    WHY are we having trouble getting these newer, more successful treatments accepted as the standard of care?

  18. Michelle Michelle

    Immunotherapy really should be standard. Sad that it isn’t.
