Cancer research is making a lot of headlines of late. If you’ve ever had anyone in your family that has had or died of cancer, you’re likely watching closely to see what relief science can find.
It’s vital to remember that cancer isn’t any one disease, in fact, cancer encompasses well over 200 diseases and there are a variety of treatment options and approaches to treating the condition.
What works well for one patient, doesn’t work at all for another. For this reason, this research is all the more important.
In order to fully understand cancer, much research is required to figure out why one approach to treatment will work so well for one patient, and not another.
How does the immune system work and fight cancer off in some people, yet in another person it won’t fight it off at all? There seems to be no rhyme nor reason.
Often it seems that cancer cells work similar to super bugs. They learn to outsmart modern therapeutic methods and seem to multiply and divide before our eyes.
The more research that is done, the more scientists and medical professionals can determine how it works and why it requires a variety of treatments.
The more funding these research centers can get, the more information they can gather on cancer and how it affects various ethnicities and environments.
Again, no to patients are alike, even if they both have the same form of cancer. That said, it’s tantamount to finding the cure that we understand and continue funding research programs that are seeking to find the cure to cancer.
If we take just a small part of the ownership to help eradicate the condition amongst the population, we’re going to help someone eventually.
It only takes a small amount to make a difference. If everyone would just take the time to make a small donation we could continue funding most of these projects.
It’s important and vital to fund cancer research if we ever hope to find the cure. In many cases, the cure is just around the corner and it will only take a few more years of research to find that cure.
For anyone who has lost a loved one or has a recent diagnosis of cancer, you already know how vital this research can be. The cure may be just around the corner but we won’t know if we don’t have the funding to find it.
