By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAME on November 14, 2007
A panel of top-flight experts discusses cancer research." Sir Paul Nurse (President of The Rockefeller University), Harold Varmus (President, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center), David Nathan (President Emeritus, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute), Deb Schrag (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center) and Martin Abeloff (Director, The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins). The panel discusses advances in screenings and early detection and other methods of prevention like the HPV vaccine, the changes in accuracy of diagnoses, and cancer treatments such as targeted therapies." There is in my mind something a bit surrealistic about the discussion. The experts are positive people extremely knowledgable and courteous. They talk about the importance of prevention, how smoking is responsible for thirty- percent of cancer deaths worldwide. They talk about the epidemic of lung cancer which is coming to Asia because of increased smoking there. They condemn the cigarette companies who so actively advertise their product. They speak of the the situation in the poorest parts of the world, where people die of preventable cancers for lack of proper medical care. They report on the advances in 'outcomes' with cancer over- all, and especially with breast and colo- rectal cancer. They discuss some of the most innovative recent treatments, and prospects for the future. They make it clear that Cancer is not one illness, but hundreds. And they talk of an ongoing, evolving struggle. They are not Utopian but in fact realistic, and precise.
Nonetheless the surreal feeling I had , and this is something neither Charlie Rose nor the panel are responsible for, is in the difference between their atttiude and mode of discussion, and the actual reality of those who suffer from cancer.
