For me it is sickening and sad
This seems like a really misinterpreted information. Let me xplain:
There is no cure in ultimate sense for cancer. Yes, we know countless ways to kill tumors... in vitro. Heck, you can kill it with alcohol, and other household chemicals. But when it comes to humans, situation changes drastically. You can have 50 people with the same type of cancer, same localisation, same severity... ANd you give them the same treatment, try to keep the same conditions (diet, other medicaments, ...) And yet, for some it just wont work, or can even harm them. So if government is afraid it will have sideeffects, it is rightfully so. Because it is not in question, it is almost certain it will.
When I had biochemistry course at the uni, our teacher was in the one of the leading teams in cancer research (czech republic is known for cancer research). She told us they have invented amazing chemical that kills cancerous cells while avoiding normal cells. But, as said previously, this is the case only in vitro, in vivo it was not very effective and had numerous side effects. Thats just reality.
And don't even get me started about the fact that it was only tested on 10 people. That is just ridiculously low number to draw any conclusions about effectiveness and side effects of said medicaments.
"Also not one person will fund it because they still want to mass produce medicines that don't work." This seriously sounds like idea only fake news want to spread. And we all can be certain it is not the case!
Right now we cure cancer with treatments that don't work 100 %, but have the best pros/cons balance.
And I am not saying that what you described never happened or wont happen. I just wanted to say what is actually going on and debunk wrong informations presented.

I apologize for giving news that is not the greatest to tell and I have kept it to myself but I figured I would at least inform all the great people in this hunter community that have helped me thought out the years i had a hard time dealing alone with my sons battle, With that all being said I hope every 1 had a great holidays and New Year and wish all the best this new year 2018 to all.
I am sorry to hear that. And I wish you the best!
I know you heard it million times, but I don't agree with your decision. You fought for your son really hard, helped him as you could. Why won't you allow him to do the same? For me it is like two contradicting things, selfish decision with outcome that won't be any better than if you actually fought for a longer life. Don't want to sound harsh, but you really should fight, as you showed to your son when he was sick. You both deserve it!
