Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us regarding the survival rates of breast cancer. There are many elements to the answer and I advise you to request a full consultation to discuss your case further. I would however point to two facts that you might help you:

1-There is no reason to undergo double mastectomy unless there is a genetic mutation that warrants that decision. Preventive mastectomies do not improve the survival rate and should be done very selectively.

2-Not all stage III breast cancers are the same but the survival is around 75%

Hope this helps
