Most of the relatives I've buried left a chemo trail right into the hearse.

Yeah, my brother's a doctor.
Every time he sees a cancer patient walk in he only sees dollar signs. ;\)

Good thing nobody is dropping billions into finding a cure.
Building a computer is much more lucrative than going down in history as the one who discovered a cure for cancer.
