Branching off from the lung cancer advocate's path that I aम on has brought me to the issue of personalized medicine, genetics and the future of cancer research. Now is the time, as we debate the reform of health care in this country, to begin looking at the macro not only the micro, silo approach. The cancer research focus must evolve; it's not the silo approach - it's genomics, its the molecules. Let's see if we can get the dialogue going.
Also let's see if those who identify ourselves as being in the "lung cancer world can begin focusing on the macro picture - on the coalition that can "make it happen". Sharing is caring.
