Over the past 30 years, advances in science and technologies have led to significant medical progress. Cancer research and resources, however, have been overwhelmingly focused on treating cancer after it occurs rather than preventing it.
Treatment after the fact can’t spare patients the traumatic experience of cancer and is often toxic and invasive. It also cannot impact the steady rise in new cancer patients or the related cost explosion in cancer care.
Prevention does spare our loved ones the trauma of cancer and of its treatment and offers what every patient dreams about: not getting cancer in the first place.
At HeritX, we believe cancer can and must be prevented. But we have to think differently.
