Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day - 13 October 2011

Will this day make a blind bit of difference?  Is anyone really interested in trying to find ways of helping those of us with this cancer to live longer and better lives?  I have become cynical enough to think not.

One problem is the inability of the medical profession to think outside the box.  This article shows just what I mean. Oncology Professor father thinks that his son's use of alternative treatments is hog wash, but they are working for him at the moment and without the dreadful side effects of conventional treatment.  But for the medical profession they are not proven to be effective because there haven't been trials.  What about the trials that have bought and paid for my the pharmaceutical companies to show that their products work?  How accurate are these and what do they actually prove?  Or are they just a marketing tool to push product?
