Tour de Rock day proclaimed in Sooke — 5 Comments

  1. to fund horrific research on animals? – no thanks! billions raised over decades and no advancement. still the same 3 treatments. its a money making business, with no incentive to end its source.

    • Ann you are dead wrong, the incentive is children’s lives like my daughters. Let me tell you about many children who themselves are experiments in the fight against cancer. Themselves fighting after effects and dying from the ‘cure’. Also children’s cancer only gets 4% of funding for research so you are raging against the wrong machine.

    • My son was put on a research drug when he was diagnosed with aml cancer with a five year follow-up in hopes it would help him and then become the new and improved protocol for his type of cancer.

    • It is constantly changing and thank goodness for research. 30 years ago only 2% of children with aml survived
      Now it is closer to 50-60%.

  2. Sorry you feel that way Ann, there are changes and advances in cancer research. Also many good programs that assist families stricken with cancer.
