      I really don’t know, I hope soon but there are so many different types that have to be researched.

      Neither I know. And certainly society must continue to support cancer research for years to come.

      A lot of cancers are already curable, some only if caught early enough. Cures can include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
      A lot of great work is being done in cancer research and progress is being made all the time. There won’t be one single cure that works for all cancers but hopefully some day there will be cures which are tailored for each type.
      I don’t know when that will happen though.
