Dr. Judy Garber, the BCRF co-scientific director, sat down with WBZ-TV’s Paula Ebben and Liam Martin Wednesday.
She said, “We cure patients every day, partly that’s because we have learned that some tumors are more easily cured and we try not to overtreat them, so less chemotherapy. We have ways of analyzing the tumor so we can avoid chemotherapy but still cure the patient. We don’t cure every patient, but patients who are too positive, that subside of patients we cure. That was the worst most aggressive breast cancer and today those patients are cured most of the time. We do cure breast cancer, but we haven’t figured out how to prevent it.”
