    60 Minutes: CBS

    I was surprised there was no thread for this show. I wanted to let all of you know about this story that is airing tonight on a new cancer treatment that offers amazing results.

    I was thrilled to see a story about a new treatment that is being described as a cure for cancer! They have used the Polio vaccine! The results are amazing to say the least. What really got my attention was seeing Dr. Friedman of Duke Medical center sing its praises. He's the top brain surgeon in the country and if he is this impressed, well.....I'm very excited. Here's a link with a video clip.

    Thanks for the heads up! Related to this story, did you see or hear about the Vice episode a few weeks ago that featured other virus treatments for cancer? They covered teams at the Mayo clinic, Children's Hospital in Philadelphia and MD Anderson. Teams there are using the cold virus, measles, and HIV with success.

    This week's Vice on HBO had a similar segment about the use of viruses to treat and even cure cancer. I've been looking forward to tonight's 60 Minutes story. And, you are right, how can there not be a 60 Minutes thread before now? That's one show I always assumed everybody watches.
    You can't have everything....where would you put it?

    Great idea, Debb, to start a '60 Minutes' thread.

    Hmm, I am surprised too we do not have one already.

    I try weekly to watch it but Sunday nights can be so cray cray with TV viewing.

    I heard them do a bit on the radio about the polio vaccine, how interesting using a deadly disease to fight another deadly disease.

    Use polio to treat cancer? - CBS News


    Like many original ideas, Matthias Gromeier's notion that polio might kill cancer tumors was met with disdain. But two decades later, the use of the virus known for crippling and killing millions is showing promise against one of the most virulent forms of cancer -- glioblastoma brain tumors. Two patients Scott Pelley meets in the first clinical trial for the treatment have been declared cancer free by doctors. Pelley's report, in which 60 Minutes cameras spent 10 months capturing patients receiving the therapy and learning of its effects, will be broadcast on Sunday, March 29 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

    Dr. Friedman, of Duke, has operated on many famous people, including Senator Teddy Kennedy and Wayne Osmond. He's also operated on several people that I know personally. Some have survived. I think he accepts the most serious cases. I have the utmost respect for this man, so his opinion on this is important to me.

    Cancer is a cruel disease. Any new treatment is like music to my ears. I'm praying this turns out to be the discovery of the century.

    I'm not sure how far reaching this discovery will be, but I also pray that it could eventually help my 4 year-old niece, who has Tuberous Sclerosis Syndrome. She has tubers in her brain. She's a patient at Duke. One day, perhaps she may benefit from this new treatment.

    The saddest thing is when a child is seriously ill. Prayers for your little niece's health, Debb. I hope this treatment will help her!

    I appreciate those words. Her condition is not cancer, but these tubers cause seizures and other problems when they are on organs. There is no cure, but with treatment......we can only pray for these little ones futures.
