Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies

Themes of Cancer

Clip: Season 1 | 5m 24s

One great theme in cancer over the last hundred years is the bravery, the heroism of scientists, doctors and their patients, who have refused to accept the staus quo. This is what has advanced cancer to the state we are now and hopefully will advance it far more in the years to come.
