Reading about the latest developments in medical science has been intriguing and interesting and have given me lots of hope for the future. My mom is an OBGYN doctor and surgeon, and she has taught me a lot about the human body and about how to prevent and treat all kinds of health conditions. She has also sparked an interest in medicine in me.
Even though I did not end up making the decision to become a doctor myself, I have been interested to learn about the latest breakthroughs in medicine. My grandma passed away from cancer, and she developed it at a fairly young age. Cancer is something that really scares me and I have known several other people who have passed from it tragically besides my grandma.
Reading about clinical trials using immunotherapy for cancer gives me lots of hope for the future of cancer treatment. I have been reading about clinical trials of new treatments that target a patient’s immune system. These treatments seem to improving survival rates when it comes to cancers that are hard to treat. It has been inspiring to learn more about immunotherapy when it comes to fighting cancer and I can’t wait to read more about it.
