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to the lead source in this 'social current see,' "The old system classifying cancer by the tissue of where it arose is outdated.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.

Oh my, another IVIG!

Cancer remission for multiple years is a marvelous blessing.

However, the condition is not without constant attention to matters relating to long-term maintenance, wellness, and prevention of conditions that weaken the immune system.  Still, I wouldn't want to face any alternative and I am grateful for the journey as well as the loved ones and caregivers who have helped bring us to this place.
