The Cancer Show runs part 2 of “Thinking Before Pinking” With Gayle Sulik, which focuses on the dream of eradication and what decades of trends in incidence and mortality suggest about where society stands in the search for a cure. Here is an excerpt:
“Every year people walk, run, volunteer, and consume products with the cure in mind, raising billions of dollars to support the cause and the dream. The dream fuels hope and expectation that society is progressing toward that day when the dream of eradication is a definitive reality. What would that day look like?

Post Script: THE CANCER SHOW is a documentary project that takes a “light-hearted look at how U.S. health policy politics and profit-driven healthcare drive common misperceptions about cancer to the general public at large – while ignoring the possible causes.” No doubt breast cancer is a leading character in this tale of carcinogenic proportions along with environmental cancer risks, blind consumption, and the cancer industry. The creators of the show hope to inspire, entertain, and illuminate as they encourage public participation in one of the most critical problems facing citizens today.
