Unfortunately the basic research is not translational medicine, and there are many oncogene targets that have been known for AGES yet no one has acted to get a therapy for those. It is the pharmaceutical companies that develop life saving drugs, with an eye on profit (and oncology biologicals are super popular with the patent cliff on their heels).
I was a basic researcher once, and although I was asking questions they were very esoteric and BASIC in nature. I don't believe the lab I was in had any grants from Breast Cancer foundations, but it could have. As I said before, basic research is "for the birds".
I am not lending my pain and suffering so others can enjoy fundraisers and do who knows what with that money. I am angry on behalf of all the women that go on these fundraising marches, with no hair on their heads, looking for hope. I am DONE drinking the pink koolaid. Hope there's a special place in XXX for those who benefit from the pain and suffering of others under the guise of "help".
