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.
