HIV helps save young cancer patient (YouTube/CNN)

I saw this on a friend’s wall on Facebook and I was awestruck.

Isn’t this what we should be researching? Instead, people are spending loads of money for products like Viagra and Cialis and we aren’t working on more research for things like this?

I cried watching this. The magic of medical science — taking something as life-threatening and destructive as HIV and turning it around as a means with which to combat cancer.

This is just the beginning, really. Can you imagine what will happen five years down the line? Ten years down the line? If they can perfect this procedure, make it accessible and safe and decrease the risks involved, we might see a cancer-free future.

Hope. This bit of news gives me hope.
