    It depends on your ER PR her2 status and the type of breast cancer. Also your oncologist may have the specimen sent for a recurrence score. These things should be discussed with your doctor and a 2nd opinion if you choose. Triple negative will always have chemo as it is a very aggressive cancer! There is so much to learn about breast cancer

    Dear anonymous Be careful a friend of mine caught hers early and she had it sent off to see if it was low med high and that would be determined weather she had to take it, sure enough she had to take 3 treatments

    I refused when offered the second round of chemo. Can't believe they don't have better treatments than that, that target only the cancer. Am doing the Budwig protocol and acupuncture.

    I've been reading about Gerson Therapy after watching The Beautiful Truth on Netflix. Although I can't see how I personally will find a way to pursue this option, single mom with FT job and limited funds, it may be a viable alternative to chemo for some.
