I've been watching "promising research," even "breakthroughs" in finding a cure for cancer for fifty years.
There is never going to be a "cure" for cancer but we have made huge advances. Childhood leukemia's are rarely fatal now and we've tripled the lifespan of women with breast cancer. The new generation of anti-emetics (and that includes marijuana) have allowed more patients to complete their chemotherapy, raising their chance for remission.
The next generation of targeted immune therapies maybe the closest we ever get to a cure.
