Chemotherapy Survival Rate

I’m sure you have seen this interesting Survival Rate Graph, by Australian Oncologists: Lead author Associate Professor Graeme Morgan,a radiation oncologist at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney; Professor Robyn Ward is a medical oncologist at University of New South Wales/St. Vincent’s Hospital and a third author, Dr. Michael Barton, a radiation oncologist and a member of the Collaboration for Cancer Outcomes Research and Evaluation.  The study concluded that overall, chemotherapy contributes just over 2 percent to improved survival in cancer patients.

I didn’t  realize that Hodgkin’s lymphoma has a three times higher survival rate than the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – with chemotherapy, that is.

Of course, the study being from 2005, it can be argued that nowadays there are much more effective chemotherapies in use.?

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
