A lot of the time, pleas for donations and contributions go the human route - here’s little Johnny who needs to be saved, please open your hearts and wallets. I call Bravo Sierra on that - it’s nice, but this shows you how your money is being used.
If you’re not biotech minded, cancer researchers are looking at treating cancer like the flu or any other communicable disease, using the body’s own immune system to fight tumors, rather than just pump someone full of drugs and hope it takes. How cool is that? Going with nature and natural defense mechanisms rather than trying to sidestep them.
PS - When I recommend a fund raising effort here, this is after I have made a contribution myself.
