Please know that all treatment options for breast cancer are not appropriate for me.  We have genetically sequenced my cancer tumors twice.  So we know which treatments are best suited to combat my specific form of ER+PR+HER2- breast cancer.  We have been sent information from many friends with treatment ideas. We do discuss many of them with my doctors, but most do not address my cancer and therefore would prove either less effective than my current treatments if not completely ineffective.  For instance, immunotherapy that has had success in other cancer settings is still not an option for me because the genetic makeup of my cancer is resistant to the treatment. For a drug to be effective it must target ER+PR+HER- breast cancer and the particular subset within that larger group which contain the ERS1 mutation.
