Cancer and Stem Cell Research

Hey y’all! Hope everyone had a fun weekend!

This weekend I found an interesting article related to stem cell research and cancer. I found this article interesting because in the past year and a half my father has been fighting stage 3 colorectal cancer. Because I am a science major and my dad is fighting this horrible disease, I have became very interested in the research being done to find a cure. This particular article discusses how cancer stem cells are known to be an originator of tumors. Researchers believe that these cancer stem cells develop because the cells develop improperly. Here is the article if you are interested in reading more about this research project:
