Cancer Kills

Have you ever lost someone to cancer? Just last year alone, I lost my aunt, grandma, uncle, and a close family friend. Cancer is a very scary thing. In fact, it is responsible for nearly 600,000 deaths each year.

Although there are many types of chemotherapy and additional medical treatments, it is still possible that neither will be successful. Chemotherapy can also make a patient severely sick. I wish they’d invent an actual cure for every type of cancer. To find a healthy cure for all of it, would be life saving and helpful to many. I hope by reading this it pushes oncologists to find a cure and help make the world a better place.
