I guess my answer to you is that we all would like to know the answer to your questionl Breast cancer is being treated like a chronic disease. Most women have chemo type drugs until they no longer work, then try another kind. Is your mother not seeing an oncologist? Estrogen type therapy??? Estrogen feeds many kinds of breast cancer. There is another drug Herceptin that is a hormone type but it only works on some, also. I am way over my head here. My daughter has breast cancer that was in her bone marrow and two types of chemo have given her a bone marrow test cancer free, however her oncologist keeps her on the weekly chemo so it has no chance of recurring. I would find the best oncologist available for my mother for an assessment. Breast cancer is not to be treated lightly. Hugs MK
