Might we be one step closer to curing cancer?

Cancer kills millions of people around the world each year, and in 2016, it’s estimated that some 595,690 Americans will die of the disease. Chances are you know somebody who has, has had, or has passed away from cancer, or that you know somebody who will develop the disease in their lifetime.

For years, researchers and scientists have worked tirelessly at developing a cure for cancer, which can affect humans in more than 100 various types. Among the newest and most hopeful of these is a vaccine, which one hospital began testing on patients very recently.
