Are the pharmaceutical companies treating our symptoms instead of supplying us with the cure? Am I the only one that finds it strange that year after year billions of dollars are given to Cancer Research but yet year after year we seem farther and farther away from finding the cure? With the level of today’s research and technology, how is this possible? Well, I have a logical answer for that question…yep, you guessed it…MONEY!!! There is more money in treating the symptoms verses administering the cure. Since 2005 the National Institute for Cancer has reported receiving an average of $4.9 billion in funding. In 2015, Cancer.org stated that there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases diagnosed and 589,430 cancer deaths in the United States alone. Pharmaceutical companies and research foundations are swarming in funds while we are left overcome with grief from losing a loved one to the unfair battle of cancer.
