We appear to know how the Universe started which is no mean feat but when it comes to Glioblastoma Multiforme the Medical fraternity are running around like headless Chickens, what is the problem?? This horrible disease should have been beaten years ago!!

When I started this terrible journey I thought just like you. Nowadyas after reading a lot and starting to understand the complexity of a cell I feel more lost than ever. The countless genes, proteins and the process of how all this works is starting to be be known now.
Many trials are on the run including the ones that researches don't have a clue about how they can work in the cells, repairing DNA or improving imunity. The real "Bing Bang" of the universe will be the day that we , humans, can control an out of control cell division.
I pray for this day with all my heart and soul like all of you.
my best and warm wishes to all
