CANCER

RESEARCH

Despite major advances – from an overall survival rate of 10 percent just fifty years ago to nearly 90 percent today, for many rare cancers, the survival rate is much lower. Believe in the Gold is excited and confident in our partner, Dr. Douglas J Mahoney and his ongoing research that may soon provide an exciting alternative to drug-based therapies for some cancers.
