A New Cancer Treatment

This is an unusual DigiDame post, but one that I wanted to do for a few weeks. Lester Holt, host of NBC Nightly News, was one of many newscasters around the country, who announced a new cancer drug that attacks the DNA of a tumor rather than the location in the body.

This is supposed to be a major breakthrough in the successful treatment of cancer. I listened to this announcement with great hope that many more people can be cured forever because of this major breakthrough.

I recorded the segment to share this with you. What startled me the most was that a doctor friend initiated a conversation with me about this new drug because he was depending on it to cure a loved one.

That was the first time in my life that I felt like an insider in the world of medical innovation. It was a big wow moment. If this cancer drug does the trick, then I was there at the beginning. I wanted you to experience this too.

Good luck and best wishes for a cure.

  1. It’s good to see that Immunotherapy is getting more attention and FDA approval, although it has been old news in the cancer community for many years. The final point in the story about the value of getting GENETIC TESTING is also VITAL. If a parent or relative had any cancer, it is important that you get genetic testing (fairly easy at major medical centers) and also tell your children to be tested. We learned a lot and acted on it. And please join us in contributing to projects that encourage doctors to advise patients about genetic testing. https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/causes-prevention/genetics/genetic-testing-fact-sheet AND GET TESTED !!!
