I realized--over 30 years ago--there would never be a cure for cancer.
A vaccine is now on the market which should mean a massive reduction in the number of cases of cervical cancer saving thousands of lives in the future.
I know of several people who have survived throat cancer, breast cancer etc.... Their lives were saved because of drugs developed and sold by drugs companies.
The current thinking is that viruses may be the cause of several cancers and perhaps some of the so-called auto-immune diseases. Vaccines against these diseases will come and prevent people from getting the diseases.
I'm angry at drugs companies for not coming up with an effective drug for my disease but I take my hat off to those companies for the drugs they have developed for other conditions.
And the question is - who else would develop, trial and market drugs? Government? Charities?
So if (when) a company develops a very effective treatment to stop MS in its tracks, and a drugs which encourages the growth of brain tissues, is anyone really going to deny themself these drugs because the companies make too much profit? Not me - I'll be first in the queue and will rob a bank to get hold of them.
