catlady91 Posted September 25, 2020 Share Posted September 25, 2020 My mum has a friend whose mother has a very rare aggressive form of leukemia which is untreatable- the only medication available is ridiculously and unjustly expensive. My mum feels so grateful to be alive but it also got to her because ten years ago she wouldn't have had such a good prognosis. The doctors said that even ten years ago she would have been terminal but now the she's been given treatment with curative intent (I know Americans don't use the term cure but in the UK they seem to, well maybe it depends on the doctor) and her response to treatment has been excellent! I'm grateful that she's doing so incredibly well and has good prospects! I'm grateful to the advances in medicine and I want to volunteer for raising money for cancer research. Hopefully this will be the decade of breakthrough in treating and curing cancer. Judy M2, JamesB and Rower Michelle 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
