Studies, better testing, better treatments, more experiments, billions of dollars spent, the best and brightest minds, the best technology, but still NOT EVEN CLOSE TO A CURE. Doesn't anybody want to know why? Hope continues to sell, and is also a major component of the economy. Until and unless the public DEMANDS some accountability, money will continue to be thrown down the rat hole.
Diagnosis and treatment aren't good enough. They can delay the disease, but can't prevent recurrences. Is this really the best American medical geniuses can provide?

A friend of ours had breast cancer and now 12-years later is still cancer free and enjoying her grandchildren. She was diagnosed Stage 2/3 and had to have a dual mastectomy, but as I said, she is enjoying the time she was given. BTW, there has been massive headway made in detection, treatment and cures to all cancers the last 60-years. You need to do some researfc h Voice.

Diagnosis and treatment aren't good enough? You may be right, but try to tell that to all the families of the survivors. For that matter tell it to those families that lost loved ones to this horrible disease before modern diagnosis methods and treatment. Not to mention the fact that the research continues. Like I said you might be right, but I personally know a mother enjoying her children after a double masectomy, and two grandmothers enjoying their grandchildren after that same surgery. Is it the perfect solution? No but it is much better than the alternative. NO RESEARCH = NO RESULTS = AUTOMATIC DEATH SENTENCE and hope damn sure beats NO HOPE!

I will hope and say a prayer V o R that you and your family ever have to go through cancer of any kind.

My father died of cancer as did my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. My wife has been through a double mastectomy and chemo. So save your prayers for someone else.
When people and the country get serious about eliminating this disease we may see some real progress. Until the medical community is held ACCOUNTABLE the next generation will still be "running for the cure". Perhaps you can accept status quo; I cannot. America has the resources to wage on all out war on cancer. Instead, it wastes billions in aid to other countries that don't appreciate our help. Yes, I'm angry and only with others would be as well. Maybe then some action will be taken.

I will give you my sympathy for your loss, my father also died of cancer, and my best friend is currently undergoing cancer treatment, so I am somewhat familiar with what you have been thru. I need not save prayers, they are limitless, and you seem to need one to deal with your anger over your losses. Yes I do think we should use our recources to cure cancer and other diseases instead of aid to countries who not only don't appreciate our help, but hate us as well. But until such a time comes, I will do what I can, if that means running for a cure so be it. Research has come a long way and progress is being made, I do wish it had come in time for your family, mine, and all the others who have lost loved ones to this terrible disease.

Breast cancer is not just one disease. It's an umbrella term. Which kind do you think we should cure first? Since there are multiple and entwined causes, what do you know that the researchers do not?
You have been seduced by the term "breast cancer" into thinking its one disease, apparently all sharing the same traits so there can be one cure. The only trait the cancer share is rapid and changed cell division. You are in fact asking for one cure that works for multiple, different diseases and many individual traits within subtype. It's never happened with any. Other disease Custer so I can't imagine why the breast cancers would be any different. My daughters are at high risk, and I fervently wish what I'm saying wasn't true.

Women are 5, 10, 20- year and upward survivors of breast cancer. Aside from that, The BRCA 1 gene mutation, which increases the risk of breast cancer, also makes the chances of developing colon cancer much greater. Colon cancer is male cancer and has some other factors linking the cancers. The feeling is, find the cure for one and cure two. BTW, how much do you give to cancer research? Maybe you need to look at longevity tables over the past 70 years ... yes infant mortality has gotten much better, as has severe trauma treatment. However people are living longer, near longer lives because of drugs, and treatments. You will benefit from that, but you still whine like a stuck pig. Let me guess--you're an Odonothing supporter.
