Even though the anxiety and fear drives me (and yes it's almost like a fuel), I remain hopeful that cancer will not kill me. Then I learn of projects such as this upcoming film by Ken Burns. It will show what the cancer patients of the past endured, where we are now in the fight, and where the future might take us. This film echoes my feeling of where we are scientifically. I feel that we are poised, right now, to find cures for certain types of cancer. If not cures, then at least better ways of detecting and treating to ensure better survival rates. I'm excited about the science of things. I wish I would've been one of the ultra intelligent people who make things happen. The ones who really figure things out. But I'm not and that's ok. At least I'm still here to spread the word about this wonderful film. A film of reflection and hope. Please keep a lookout for it in Spring 2015.
