Cancer nerd

I spent about 40 minutes last night watching this. Because I am a… cancer nerd??? Because I kind of miss my doctor? I can’t claim to have understood even 50% of what she said, but I like her style and I did learn something fascinating, about Coley’s toxins and the origins of immunotherapy in his (misguided) work.

Also, since she wasn’t talking to patients, she did talk about some patients of hers who didn’t make it. The unvarnished view you don’t necessarily get unless you ask, and even then you probably wouldn’t hear much detail.

Anyhow, it increased my already great respect for her as a researcher. She has truly devoted her entire life to this cause. Thanks, Dr. P.
