Cancer affects millions of lives each year, devastating families and loved ones for causes that are still unknown. I have witnessed the tragedy with many of my family members who had suffered from this so-called incurable misfortune but, I continuously try to work towards it with support, funding and research programs so maybe we can finally have a cure.
Cancer supposedly has been around since the Ancient Egyptian times when it was first recorded in the early 1600 B.C. Of course society has progressed tenfold since then in the medical field and within the last 50 years we discovered how to pin point cancer the size of a blueberry and remove it, unlike old times when it was only treated if it was superficial. Cancer has decreases by almost 20 percent in the last decade and with each year that passes by almost 152,000 patients evade the terrible outcome because of our medical breakthroughs. Unfortunately though this illness if you will, continues to plague the world until such a discovery can be made to completely be recovered and recuperated from it, but will such a cure happen or has it already and we just do not know about it.
Companies such as some of the ones listed below are working towards a better future not only for our nation but of them all.

There has been some word spreading that a small British company, Genentech in California, owned by the Swiss giant Roche, and Britain’s GlaxoSmithKline has caused some attention to a possible breakthrough . How cancer works is a host cell is mutated by various factors , origin is still unknown but the cell undergoes spontaneous reproduction infecting other cells around the area as well, shutting down specific functions or causing body pathways to flux and change. According to this new break-through that scientists discovered the key to answering the cancer riddle is in our immune system. This is what they have discovered:
The fact is if one of these corporations find the missing puzzle piece to this or do already have a cure for cancer most of these research projects are funded by sporting events, fundraisers, school activities, donations and so forth; that the oncologists who have spent years and years of their life looking for the answers would come to halt. People could come to think this is a good thing, the others on the job and business end of it would consider the outcome to be negative due to no more funding. Honestly it is sad to think about it, because what if such a cure was found and saved millions of lives but yet again the dollar wins this battle , corporations seem to not want a complete cure , but rather a way to stop the cause of death and over time treat it better so they can continue with the funding.
corporations are having an uproar with the future outcomes on a cure, money and that the jobs of millions will be lost, but that isn’t even close to the reward of benefiting the human race from the worst known “Illness” we can contract. We should be more focused on a cure because after there is one we could focus on other problems life has thrown at us and continue to progress.
