We’re gonna cure one cancer at a time. And it’s gonna be one cancer with a new drug, a new, targeted therapy. We’re going away from many intravenous chemotherapy drugs to pills. There’s one leukemia today that was a hundred percent fatal within three years when I was doing my training many years ago. Today that is cured with a pill that patients take. We now have a 95 percent 10-year survival of those patients. So I’ve seen many, many changes over the years, especially in the area that I work in: the lymphomas, the lukemias, the myelomas. Great progress.
We always say we have the best relationships with our patients because we actually love each other. And the best thing I can ever say to a patient is, “You’re cured.” And that really makes my day.
