So did they cure cancer or what?

Are we going to stop seeing stories like these in the next 3-5 years?

Cancer will never be cured.

The more you learn about the disease, the more you will grow to understand that. To cure cancer would be to discover immortality.

In the meantime, we can treat cancer, and hope to extend quality and length of life, and continue to try and work towards improving both of these outcome measures...

If Kelly Clarkson would drop everything and hop in her G-6 right this minute and go there to meet and thank those kids in person that would be totally awesome.

What's wrong with immortality?

Childhood cancer is one of the saddest damn things I can think of and one of the reasons I don't believe in God. If there is a God, he sure is an asshole of highest proportions just by that one point.

My little cousin three years ago was diagnosed with a rare cancerous brain tumor when he was 13 years old. He spend almost a year in chemo, and radiation treatments to remove the cancer. He finally beat it, but the affects are still with him. His hair is not really growing back, and has a scar on his neck where they would do the cancer treatments. Cancer sucks balls, but its just heartbreaking when a kid has to go through it.

/Something in my eye.

Many coroners claim to find scar tissue where tumors once were in bodies they examine fairly often, when the people didn't even know they had it, let alone beat it. And of course there are the cases where tumors being watched by medical professionals suddenly die.

When we figure out how our body beats it, we'll know how to better allow it to.

Years ago, when I was living in Topanga Canyon, I had a neighbor who was a casual friend, and he and his wife were customers at my store. The guy was a pediatric oncologist at UCLA, and specialized in difficult cases. He seemed like a pretty normal guy, if a bit quiet, and I liked the couple, and we had them round for a drink now and then. I did notice that he never talked about his work, at all. This was around 1973.
Then, somewhere around '76 or '77, one day he was in the middle of a consultation with the parents of one of his dying patients (of which he had many) and he suddenly got up, and without a word, hung his lab coat up and walked out of his office - never to return.
He then went home and proceeded to spend every day sitting on his veranda, watching Old Topanga Creek trickle by and drinking himself to death.
Took him about four-five years. By the end he had pushed everyone - wife and kids, brothers, me and all his friends out of his life. The last couple of times I went to his house he pretended he wasn't home.
It's my belief that cancer killed him as surely as it did any of his little patients.
It's one hell of a disease.

Without mortality, the world would be grossly over populated. This being said, these kids are far too young to have to deal with this. Here is hoping they all live to 80.

/cousin is a 25 year childhood cancer survivor. Doing awesome in life.

I wonder if the RIAA will actually do anything about this. If they DO, then they'll look like arseholes (and they know that, too), and if they don't, then they've set a precedent where they knowingly allowed people to violate a copyright.

That's part of the reason society needs narcissistic jerks that don't care about other people. They're perfect in these situations.
Trauma surgeons especially need to be extremely conceited. I certainly couldn't deal with those life or death situations daily and maintain my sanity for very long.
