    Yes...There are many stories with happy ending. Chemo is not the end of your life. Every day is a gift... that's what chemo reminds you. The majority of women who develop breast cancer around the world will not die of breast cancer. In fact, 8 out of 10 women who are diagnosed with breast cancer will not die from breast cancer.
    Most would do fine no matter what.
    Adding anti-cancer medications to a treatment regimen may further reduce the risk of death from breast cancer, but only by a percentage of a person's base rate risk of death from breast cancer. 70 to 80% of those diagnosed with breast cancer who get chemotherapy do not need it.
    The recommendation is inexact. It is known that a percentage will benefit, it is just not known which individuals in the population of those who get chemotherapy will be the ones who will benefit from it.
