What if, patients with early stage invasive, hormone receptor positive breast cancer can benefit from horome treatments?

Those patients: those diagnosed with early-stage, invasive, hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer who scored in a specific range of a genetic test. They benefit just as much from chemotherapy, which many don’t tolerate well and can have long-term consequences, as they do from hormone treatments, which have fewer side effects.

That sounds great.
The piece posed the question of why, if they've known about this since 2004, did Drs keep prescribing chemo for their patients.
Google profit margin chemotherapy and you'll have your answers. They're pretty shameful and disgusting.

The pharmaceutical industry dictates congress, the CDC and AMA. President says drugs prices will be coming down. He is fighting for working people. I know you do not like him but, if this happens it would be awesome.
My eye drops would not be unfordable without insurance. A tiny bottle is over a hundred dollars and I use them daily.
