This is all such bullshit. We still cannot prevent recurrences. The five year survival goal is likewise bullshit. Too often, this disease re-occurs with a vengeance. Statistics suck. So does the "research" requests. If we were capable of finding a cure we'd have found it by now. There is no profit in a cure. Think about the economic repercussions it would have. The money is in research, diagnostics, treatment, and drugs. Cancer will be with us forever. Either we're too stupid to find a cure, or our Creator never meant for us to find one. Stop deceiving people just because "hope sells".
