      Vicmar,
      I am not sure of what you are asking but if you are asking whether the overall survivability (OS) has improved, I would happily agree. As an oncology nurse I can say that there are so many new and emerging therapies. That being said, there is a difference in the OS and the mortality of a disease. Where once it was unheard of to live beyond a 5 year goal with many cancers, It is now quickly becoming commonplace. However to date... the line of mortality has not moved. Until a true cure can be found... That will never budge. I'm not sure if that answers your question but I hope this gives you some clarity.

      Thank you for your knowledge, CARM. I am also just diagnosed with metastatic TNBC. Hoping for a trial along with chemo. Want to be involved in my grandkids lives for a long time.

      Was wondering if survival is different with estrogen positive breast cancer, also metastatic?

      Er , Pr and Her1 cancers have treatments , the treatments are awful but better than triple negative.
      May we all get well and the cancers be gone.
