I’m dying of brain cancer. I prepared to end my life. Then I kept living.
This is a common topic of conversation. My views are that assisted suicide has a place - but most consider it way too early, just like this man. You get diagnosed, read about the horrors of the diagnosis on the internet and give up. But what is missed is that some people do beat this. There is progress every week. Just this week, we published 2 articles showing major gains: adding CCNU to Temodar upped the average survival to 46 months.. which means half of the people lived longer than that! And the long term results of the Optune trial showing that the 5 year survival rate, which was stuck at 5% for the last 100 years or so, is now 13%. (Still bad, but a lot better than 5%)
