Its like a problem looking at us eye to eye and challenging us what are we suppose to do about it!!
Personally, I feel that cancer as the leading cause of mortality is our own creation. We created this disease as we let "progress" take its toll on us and on Mother Earth. How much more of this do we need in order for us to realize that cancer is not just about individual struggle, its not just about losing a mother, father, son or daughter. This is about the survival of our species.
If we make projections, considering the aging population, our species can become in peril or extinction in probably a few hundred years.
