      The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last

      We have lost the war on cancer. We spend $150 billion each year treating it, yet – a few innovations notwithstanding – a patient with cancer is as likely to die of it as one was 50 years ago. Most new drugs add mere months to one's life, at agonizing physical and financial cost. In The First Cell (Basic), oncologist Azra Raza offers a searing account of how both medicine and our society (mis)treat cancer, how we can do better, and why we must. A lyrical journey from hope to despair and back again, The First Cell explores cancer from every angle: medical, scientific, cultural, and personal.
