This is just my gut feeling here, but are you sure a cure model is
defined in a Cox proportional hazard model? A cure model is all about a
moddeling the shape of the baseline survivor function, while in Cox
regression the whole point is that the baseline hazard function
completely drops out of the likelihood.
