  • The three-part series on the history of cancer caught my eye and I watched the whole six hours of the program with interest, to say the least. I remember my doctor father talking about the early days of his long medical profession, so I dug up an article written about him in 1985. His story almost parallels the story, the devastation of cancer a century ago.
