Can You Cure My Cancer?

Last week a BBC panorama programme was broadcast showing how cutting edge advances made at the Institute of Cancer Research were affecting the treatment of adults and children with very difficult cancers to treat. The programme was moving and insightful and although there were some very difficult passages to watch, there was genuine cause for hope in the transformational effect some of the experimental treatments were achieving.

Some familiar faces from the world of neuroblastoma were featured in the documentary joining the fight to make the most dangerous cancers first manageable and eventually curable. It was wonderful to see first-hand patients receiving the good news made possible by the new generation of cancer treatment.
