Philip Hare: my medical practice as did dr. gingrey, the five-year survival rate of breast cancer was approximately 50% for women in america. today it's 98%. one of the great stories. so when a patient comes to me, they can tell that patient, you're going to have a 98% survival rate. and in 2003, the five-year survival rate of breast cancer

Philip Hare

2:58:19 to 2:58:29( Edit History Discussion )

Philip Hare: if i'd waited, i most likely would have had colon cancer. just from a personal testimonial here, those health care decisions, mr. speaker, should be made between a patient and the doctor.
