There is something about stem cell transplants here:
Have you read Susan Love? She had a wonderful book that is very through and informative. I urge you to get that book and read it carefully.
It sounds like your wife has what they call "triple negative" cancer -- that is not hormone responsive or her+. That's not good because hormonal treatments are very effective, however it responds very well to aggressive chemotherapy. If Kaiser has her on a solid chemothearpy treatment plan I think you are being treated to the standard of care.
I am not an advocate of "natural healing" treatments for invasive cancer. Cancer is a nasty disease and requires nasty treatments. Many chemo drugs are derived from "natural" elements, but they are harsh to eliminate this killer disease.
There is a special forum here for women who are triple negative. If you look further down the site you'll find it.
