The amazing part isnt that she tried but that she seems to have succeeded, at least in mice:
This is a great American story and also, obviously, a great statement about the value of legal immigration. Were lucky to have Angela and shes equally lucky to have this country. Talk about a win-win situation.

I stand amazed........!
I pray this leads to something more, I lost both parents to cancer. Color me naive, or more likely cynical that a cure hasn’t been already found, because a cure could result in billions of lost dollars to many institutions and scientists.
SeeBS Sunday Morning did a nice job with her interview.
I lost one parent to it and am fighting it now myself. Congratulations to this young lady for her work. I’m always cynical, however, about any “cure for cancer”. There have been so many promising studies over the years, and medical advances have helped, but nothing ever turns out to be a cure.
May the Lord bless you and heal you.
My brother was just diagnosed with a bad form of Leukemia.
Many blessings to you, too. I’m doing fine now. Just hoping and praying it never comes back. Thank you!
Saying a prayer for your brother. There have been many advances in treatment, indeed. A relative of mine has been fighting leukemia with a very effective pill for years.
Thought it was a credible story until I clicked on it and there was a huge Ron Paul 2012 ad!!!
Just teasing the Paulists here!
If I was her, I would say, “Hey Chucky, while you were making a lemon clock at the science fair, I WAS CURING CANCER!!!”
You are now on my prayer list. May the Good Lord help you heal and may you have a long and happy life.

A friend of mine had a dream that cancer is a spiritual problem, which manifests as a physical one.
Translation: If you are a Christian, and you know of people who do deliverances a.k.a. exorcisms, go see them. If you don’t know of anyone in your area, I will strive to help you via FReepmail.
Personally had 1-3 kicked out of me, and I am a different person emotionally. A friend of mine’s dad (atheist) had “stage 4”, and we did a deliverance/exorcism from 2000 miles away, and he lives today.
I’m not an expert, and I hope you can find one, but I am happy to do my best.
[Saying a prayer for your brother]
Thank you, and you shall remain in mine.
I have a friend who is a toxicologist and pharmacologist at the James Brown Cancer Center in Louisville. She has been working with a team trying to find a cure for melanoma for the past eight years. They started out with over two thousand test drugs and are now down to five. The most promising is made from the bark of a Brazilian tree, but it still has to clear all of the FDA hurdles before it can be made available to the public.
[but it still has to clear all of the FDA hurdles before it can be made available to the public.]
I wish them success. Government restricts and delays a lot of promising ‘cures’. I can understand it to protect people but also know that many who are seriously ill would take the chance on a possible cure.
Thank you so much, SamiGirl.
The FDA does delay treatment, unfortunately. I hope your friend’s research is successful.
Far more money can be made and jobs created in TREATING cancer then in curing cancer.
I'm sure if there was ever a real cure for cancer, it would be snuffed out like a candle ... along with the person or persons who invented it.
I believe that's somewhat true in my case, and I returned to church. However, I know other people completely devoted to their faith who did not make it. Glad your friend's father is doing well.
Perhaps I didn’t make my point clear, your comments back up what I meant.
[I’m sure if there was ever a real cure for cancer, it would be snuffed out like a candle ... along with the person or persons who invented it.]
That was my whole point and why I said ‘color me cynical’.
I’m skeptical, but bump this anyhow.
That is a terrific mindset. Most of us place limitations on what we can do without even realizing it and even when we do realize it it is very difficult to break the habit. Her statement reflects unlimited openness to the possibilities and the realism that trying and failing is not a loss.
I understand what you meant.
I have known 4 people who had cancer and none survived. All but 1 had a long and expensive decline till the end.
Color me cynical as well, I hate to be that way, but with all the fund raisers, research and such over the past 40+ years you would think there would be something by now.
I feel the same way. Even in the video they said it would be YEARS before it was tried on humans. I've lost loved ones to cancer, too. Not much consolation for someone who needs a cure now. I hate even thinking this...cancer is a big business.
[but with all the fund raisers, research and such over the past 40+ years you would think there would be something by now.]
I agree, and with the greed and the disrespect for life in the world today, we can’t avoid ‘wondering’ about it.
[ I hate even thinking this...cancer is a big business. ]
We can’t help being dubious about the decades long search for cures without big results. So many would be willing to try ‘anything’ as a last resort, yet the government holds back on even that.
Expecting the drug companies to do this is like expecting an energy company to come up with a viable alternate energy source.
Lol, kinda like the invention of a perpetual motion machine.... ‘ain’t’ gonna happen.
Thanks for the ping!
It's gotten to the point where there are non-stop hospital commercials offering coupons and advertising for their "special renowned treatments" Of course what they don't tell ya is ya better have the best heath insurance, or they'll take everything you own including your home, if ya happen to still have equity left.
You’re welcome, Alamo-Girl!
God bless Angela Zhang.
prayers for your bro, Pot.
Thank you bitt!
So nice to ‘see’ you. I found an old thread that you will enjoy seeing - again!
