Summary In 1971, Richard Nixon declared a 'war on cancer'. Flush with optimism and awash with federal dollars, the cancer field plunged forward in search of a cure, leading to the revolutionary discovery of the genetic basis of cancer. But it's not until the late 1990s that advances in research begin to translate into more precise targeted therapies. Following this history, the story of Dr Lori Wilson, a surgical oncologist who is diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2014, deals with emotional and physical struggles, providing a bracing counterpoint to the historical narrative
