Hello. i appreciate your feeling towards your friend. Breast cancer can not be treated by imatinib mesylate drug. This drug does not work in it. Advanced Breast cancer is treated by chemotherapy and hormonal therapy and sometimes radiotherapy; the appropriate drugs are decided by the stage of disease and some tests (hormonal receptor tests) on the cancer tissue. There are plenty of treatment options available. So you do not worry and discuss it with your treating doctor. Hope it makes you understand better.
