Sci-fi + Current Technology = Full Body Shivers…

OK, So I ran across this article describing exciting new technology that may get us a step or three closer to a treatment for cancer, or at least brain cancer.

Now, rewind a few weeks to my experience sitting in the theater watching Will Smith in I Am Legend staring as a post-apocalyptic scientists, all alone in a world devastated by a mutated virus designed buy humans to kill cancer.

Geez!  I know it’s “just a movie” but c’mon…..that’s just scary!  I had nightmares when I originally saw the story of Robert Neville played by Charlton Heston in The Omega Man.  My son had a reaction to I Am Legend almost the same as my original experience.  He’s a few years older so I suppose a slightly less memorable experience is to be expected.  Now I have to think about this?

Seriously, I am glad that scientists are making strides.  It’s just one of those coincidences that bring back a strong memory.

  1. Don’t forget our good friend Craig. It’s awesome to see these advances especially after having to witness the agony Craig went through early in the game. Hooray for technology!

  2. Eric, you are spot on. I’ve seen too many go through it. Craig, Roberta, Lucky, several cousins, aunts, and uncles. I welcome something that has the potential to alleviate those situations and only regret that it did not come about soon enough for those that we’ve lost.
