Ultimately, I have a dream, a dream of two vials of blood, and that, in the future, as part of all of our standard physical exams, we'll have two vails of blood drawn. And from these two vials of boold we will be able to compare the DNA from all known signatures of cancer, and hopefully then deetct cancers months to even years earlier. Even with the therapies we have currently, this could mean that millions of lives could be saved. And if you add on to that recent antdcvmaenes in immunotherapy and targeted therapies, the end of cancer is in sight.
