Dr. Brawley is the Chief Medical Officer of the American Cancer Society. Dr. Brawley says that there is currently a lot of exciting research going on towards curing and preventing cancer. He says that there is a lot of overlap in treating different types of cancer, and what can be learned from treating one form of cancer can be applied to the treatment of others.
Dr. Brawley says the American Cancer Society is currently funding about 10% of the research projects being carried out by the ACS. He states that even an increase to 15% would dramatically improve the organization’s ability to fund more research and accelerate the time it will take to develop life-saving medicine.
