    I'd feel very lucky if I were that John guy.
    I thought cancer wasn't curable?

    I could have sworn that the UK had socialized medicine. Isn't that supposed to be the greatest thing ever? No need to pay for anything, it's free! Damn that bastard Bush

    So, it's gone now, good for him.....
    But it might be back you know. No guarantees, ever. Cancer is not to be beaten lightly.:undecided:

    That's like saying, "Let him die, it could come back if we get rid of it."

    Smeg, I knew I would get a mindless post from you. That's why I posted that last sentence, just for you. Needless to say you didn't seem to notice. So let me simplify it for you.

    Britian: Bad, National Health Service wouldn't cover the drug
    US: Worse, NIH won't even approve the drug so even if you get the money you can't get it

    I think the difference is that it can be treated, but there is no straight out cure. It can still come back even when all the tumours are gone.

    It's hardly fair that it's - all together - not that easy trying to say exactly what I mean in a language that's not my own.
    My post should be read as "I'm glad he's rid of it, but with things like that there's a fair chance it might be back after all, I'm not too sure he got completely rid of it"

    Too complex for you? Too bad.

    If I had to get treatment for cancer I have a better solution. Dr. Joe Brown Jr. in Phoenix, AZ is the man to go see. He cured himself of cancer through homeopathic methods then went on to become a doctor to do it for others. One hell of a man. Tough and ornery to boot.

    Once would have been enough, really, and mind you my English is probably a lot better than your Dutch.

    The trouble with annecdotal evidence is that it is not proof. Sometimes cancer goes into remission all by itself, even if they're taking sugar pills, or placing magnets on their belly buttons, or endlessly clicking the blue chat gem. The reason for organizations like NHS (which apparently was NOT consulted in the preparation of this article) is to make sure the drugs are effective and safe. They do this through testing. I guarantee you that radiation and chemo are MUCH more expensive than the 17k this guy got his buddies to cough up. I DO NOT believe that the NIH rejection of that treatment was due soley to cost.

    "alternative" medicine....BAH!!!

    Any of you out there want to line up to get on a "alternative" airplane? It hasn't been tested yet but there's a guy in Arizona that says "It's dah BOMB!!!".:thumbsup:

    Of my money? I suppose whatever I have in the bank.
    Of someone's else's money? Not a damn thing.

    I mean, I hope that there are people out there who think my life is worth something, but it's not fair for me to expect anything.

    Not sure how that qualifies as pessimism. Perhaps you would enlighten me?

    It's just my personal philosophy.

    Nobody owes me anything. I don't owe anybody else anything.
