For many years Dr. Judah Folkman led the search for a new approach to cancer treatment. Rather than use conventional therapies which attempt to kill tumors with radiation, chemicals, or surgery, Dr. Folkman looked for a way to pinpoint tumors and starve them of their blood supply. The treatments developed are called angiostatin drugs.
The Cancer Warrior is as much a beautiful story about how science works as it is about the courage shown by patients, their families, and researchers tirelessly working to find cures.
