I really enjoy reading the cancer compass newsletters. They are very informative - enlightening and give hope for better and easier diagnosis in the future for the different types of cancer.
It helps to educate us regarding the different types of cancers - what signs to look for and widens our perspective on alternative treatments.....

A great news for those requiring a complete cancer resection if their surgeon(s) can be aided and use such new technology. Hopefully the staining and detection technique shall be applicable all or to many other cancerous cell types.
