Why can’t we find cure for cancer?

DEAR EDITOR:

Amazingly, it’s been more than a year since COVID-19 came around. Look at the carnage it has unleashed on the population of this country and the world.

It’s amazing how fast modern science and medicine worked to come up with a vaccine. Not just one, but three, have emerged as front-runners in the fight against the virus. It was like “warp speed,” as someone put it. But I can’t help but wonder how, when we accomplished in just a little over one year, have we been searching for a cancer cure for more than 40 years.

I just have a problem wrapping my head around this. Then I realized that cancer treatment is a multi-billion dollar-a-year enterprise, and what would a cure do to that industry?

Has a cure been found? Would 30 pieces of silver be worth the suffering that humanity has endured over this disease? Look at the speed at which we got a cure for COVID-19 and ask: If you can do this, why can’t you cure cancer? Or are all the loved ones who have died from this dreaded disease just collateral damage?

Think about what has happened over the last year, what miracles have been accomplished? Have other advancements come our way as well?
