Just beyond the wall.
For many people looking for THE one thing that will help them, and they have found it, but it is not available.
What do you mean it is not available?
Take for instance, a TRUE STORY, Emily: We have permission to use her name from correspondence. She is a woman and a current patient fighting cancer. Emily has been in touch with a most important scientist and inventor, D.
D has developed a novel compound that has been tested and proven to kill stubborn cancer, with no known side-effects on normal, healthy cells. It just works on the cancer cells by "making them commit suicide," is the best way to explain it.
Lady Emily is only looking to kick this cancer from her life. She has been healthy all of her life, that is until now.
Due to FDA guidelines, Lady Emily's best chances will be if she can be involved in the clinical trials. It may be some time before that can even occur. Earliest the trials may be held is in the Summer of 2011. Until then, Emily and other people needing this to survive, have to do what they can to preserve their bodies and fight cancer the best they can.
What is great and somewhat, crazy, people have heard about D's great chemical compound. They want to have their hands on it TO LIVE. Here are excerpts ( with permission granted from D) from an e-mail written by Emily to inventor D:
I had a tumor on my L4 and 11 lesions on my liver as of Sept 8. I had 10 treatments of radiation on my back and that tumor is dead. I then had 3 courses of chemo, Gemzarine and Taxotere which did absolutely nothing for my liver, I now have numerous lesions so this is a fairly aggressive cancer.
So you can see how troubled the situation can be. Here we have a legitimate person reaching out to the actual inventor of her potential cure. D writes back very carefully and concerned. One less person in the the world dying from cancer that he may be able to help. Is there enough time? Here is a brief excerpt of a response from D :
I have been and continue to advance the 'state-of-the-art'. With sufficient funding, this new class of alpha amino acids can be in human clinical trials as soon as Summer 2011. This is all about timing and finances. Yes, many lives will be saved and many more will be spared the consequences of a cancer diagnosis.
So, D and Emily must wait for finances and timing. FINANCES AND TIMING!!!
If I knew there was a cure for MY cancer on the other side of the wall, I would grab a hammer and knock down the wall. If I knew there was a cure for childhood cancer, breast cancer, ANY CANCER, I would do what I can. D and Emily are doing what they can.
I call it "hurry up and wait." We are stuck on one side of the river folks, a big and wide, treacherous river. On the other side of that river is THE CURE. Do you want to just have THE CURE sit on a shelf and watch others die needlessly? OR do you want to build that bridge with the finances and manpower needed to make us all see cancer vanish? I am all about team work. Let us all find a way to do this.
We all know an Emily, and we want that person to succeed at beating cancer.
I like Emily and and want for her to survive happily.
I want inventor D to be successful and make other novel compounds to make life better for all of us.
Let's stop the walls from being in the way and knock them down. Let's build that bridge so that we may all share in knowing we've helped as best we can to eradicate cancer.
