Filed under: HealthCancerAmazingGIFsViral: News

This is HUGE!

Things have been seeming pretty bleak ever since Donald Trump officially entered office, but this amazing piece of news should at least brighten your day!

British doctors are saying they have cured two infants of cancer!!

According to a report in the Science Translational Medicine magazine, both infants had previously undergone chemo and bone marrow transplants, which didn't work.

But using "designer cells" injected into the babies, ages 11 and 16 months at the time, the T-cells attacked the cancerous cells to basically perform a miracle. Over a year later in remission, and the doctors feel confident enough to say they're leukemia-free!

This is so huge, especially as it marks the first time ever that cancer has been treated with genetically engineered immune cells from a donor!

We're no medical professional, but this sounds like a breakthrough.

We can only hope more research put into this treatment will lead to many more successful cases!!

So This High School Student May Have Just Cured Cancer!

Filed under: InspirationHealthScience!

What the what!!!

A high school student, Angela Zhang, might have just found the cure for cancer.

That's crazy!

Zhang, who is only 17 years old, has taken home a check of $100,000 from the national Siemens science contest. It's now is being suggested that her research could lead to a potential cure for cancer.

Here's what she said about what she created:

"I created a nanoparticle that's kind of like the Swiss Army knife of cancer treatment in that it can detect cancer cells, eradicate the cancer cells and then monitor the treatment response. So the major aim of the project was to personalize cancer medicine. I'm excited to learn just everything possible. Everything in the sciences — biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, even computer science — to make new innovations possible."

You're 17!! How is this even remotely fitting in to your texting and sleepovers??

This is truly an inspiration. We are so overwhelmed with joy that there are people like this in the world — who truly care about helping others — regardless of age!

Congrats, Angela! How wonderful!
