      That’s a good question, as of yet there is no cure but just a treatment. I really hope someone does develop a cure soon!

      With all the technological and scientific advancements made today and in the future, it would be a hope one day there will be a cure for cancer. Right now we can only treat it with the techniques we know that work.

      Hopefully! Because there are so many different types, with different causes, it makes things very complicated. But with the advances in technology we’re learning more every day about what causes it and how to create something to fight it

      Over the last decade, there has been enormous progress in the care and treatment of cancer. As you might know, cancer is a collection of many complex diseases, and it’s very unlikely that we will be able to find a single cure for cancer.
