Random stories from the canswerists*

More than 10.1 million sites arrive on screen once a web search is conducted, as in this BING search of mine.  Of course, no one would attempt to follow all of these sites.  Many are written and edited by actual survivors and many other are hosted by corporate entities like Blog for a Cure and HEALTHLINE.  I try to check in periodically with the few bloggers who came to my attention since my first DX with mantle cell lymphoma in April 2006.

Canswerists* biopsy new CA classifications

Those whose lives revolve around cancer treatment, both the caregivers and the survivors, know that change in therapies, drugs, and procedures is constant.  A year is a lifetime.  One hundred years is an eternity.  That's why it is astounding that researchers and scientists have just announced a new classification system for cancer.

According to the lead source in this 'social current see,' "The old system classifying cancer by the tissue of where it arose is outdated. It's been in existence for over 100 years now, and we know it doesn't merit the true nature of the cancer," said Dr. Christopher Benz, a professor at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato and co-senior author of the study.
