  1. Going through chemo I haven't minded too much the physical changes happening. Well showering when my hair was falling out was a nightmare - very fine hairs that I could feel but not get off. How others are reacting is getting to me. At work I've had to report two cancer survivors to administration. Both tried to offer me support, before I had announced my cancer. One chose to discuss it in the public bathroom where students were present. The other thought it was a great idea to tell me her horrible experience with the IV port on the day I was getting the port, then the day before my first infusion with it. There are also all the people wanting to pat me somewhere. I understand the need to touch. But chemo doesn't just kill cancer and hair follicles. It also kills bone marrow cells, the ones making blood cells. So chemo patients get sick and bruise easily. Now I have complete strangers wanting to give me blessed or annointed religious objects, while I'm on my cell phone.
  2. I know there is always a new promise for finding a cure for cancer or other killing diseases, but seldom have I seen a promise to possible stop and cure both cancer and HIV. Also other diseases like Zika too. I appears this university PhD student in Canada in working with university and government labs, has possibly done that. Stopping the disease from the molecular DNA level preventing it from metastasizing and spreading. I really hope this isn't another false hope. The one thing that is heartening is the research is being done on the academic, government level and not through private industry. Conspiracy theorists might not be able to win this one
  3. Steve Jobs died in 2011 of a type of pancreatic cancer - in medical terms a neuroendocrine tumour [NET] in the pancreas. NETs can occur in all sorts of places in the body. Last year I read about a writer, Alexander Masters, who was trying to get Apple to support a new treatment that might have been able to save Steve Jobs. A guy in Sweden - Professor Magnus Essand - and his weightlifting assistant had done promising work on a virus, and tests they conducted showed this could "eat" NETs and offered the prospect of a cure. Apparently it's been known since the 19th century that viruses can destroy cancer cells and this was what Prof Essand was hoping to do but his tests were only in animals, he had no money and there was no commercial interest in backing the £2m clinical trial. So the virus he created was just sitting in the back of his fridge since 2010. This seemed a real shame. I've just caught up on a more hopeful article last month by Alexander Masters, this time in The Guardian, about the Swedish duo's persistence and inventiveness with crowdfunding and their plan to sell the name of the virus to anyone donating £1m. If this virus can be made to work, that person's name will live on, along with all those who might be cured. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9512505/Author-appeals-to-Apple-to-fund-cancer-hope-that-could-have-saved-Steve-Jobs.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/9544400/Would-I-takean-untested-cancer-treatment-myself-Hellyes.html http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jan/04/2013-new-approach-fighting-cancer
  4. So this kid reads something far more advanced than biology in his biology class and his teacher takes it away from him. The thing is - he's dreaming up ways to save lives and proving to be very good at it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-19291258
