This gives me hope, as people aren't the only ones suffering from cancer! I had one dog who died from it & I had a scare with one of my current doggies (thank God, she doesn't have it). I hope we'll find the cures for human & non-human animal cancers!

This is an upbeat and hopeful interview. Like Peggy said, cancers are different depending on what cells/tissues are involved and where cancer cells have spread. The word itself is so scary. A combination of genetics and environmental exposures to carcinogens is a big factor in causing cancer. Treatments are so varied too. The drug mentioned here is for mast cell cancers so it won't be effective on all cancers. I doubt that there will be one "magic bullet" to cure cancer, but advances in research and treatments continually evolve and improve.

It is without question that all of us would like to find positive treatments and cures for cancer. Cancer is a very broad term as there are so many specific cancers that encompass different areas/organs of the body--whether it is human or animal. Each form of cancer has it's own "blueprint" of genetics and therefore has different courses of treatments. Cancer has caused so many untimely sufferings and deaths--let's hope that someday there is a positive and effective cure.

To hear the word curing is much better than the word treatment of this deadly disease! Each step closer to curing it, will be better for all. I lost an aunt to lung cancer and an uncle to pancreatic cancer. I am also a cancer survivor myself. There are many people and animals that suffer...One day at a time, one step further...I hope someday, there is total cure for this awful, deadly monster.

Cathy, I don't think there is a single person who has not been touched in some way by cancer. My dad, my sister, my best friend, and my aunt all died of different types of cancer. I wish we could rid the world of it.

Norrie, it is a devastating thing to watch pets or humans die because of this awful disease. Hopefully, they can find the "total cure" and rid the world of it!

Step by step, and every step closer they get to curing and not just treating cancer is a small miracle in itself. I lost a cat to cancer, and I hope that soon no pet and no human will have to go through that.
