Cancer treatments have changed dramatically since Congress declared war on cancer in 1971 with the passage of the National Cancer Act. This program explores the history of the Cancer Act and takes a look at breakthrough treatments that would not have occurred without it. Patients who have benefited from these once-experimental therapies tell their stories, and scientists who have been at the forefront of cancer research for several decades talk about the vast difference in treating cancer then-before the Cancer Act-and now. Commentators include Dr. Vincent DeVita, former director of the National Cancer Institute, and Dr. Steven Rosenberg, NCI Chief of Surgery.
