Man With Only 18 Months To Live Now Completely Cancer-Free After Taking Breakthrough Drug

Astounded doctors could only describe his recovery as “phenomenal”.

Cancer patient Bob Berry has previously been told by his doctors that he would only have 18 months to live. So it is indeed miraculous that he is now living completely cancer-free after taking a wonder drug.

Bob, who is 60 years of age, is one of the 12 people in the world who have taken the new drug that, as of the moment, remains unnamed. Doctors are astonished by the results of the treatment and they had one word to describe it – ‘phenomenal’.

Three years ago, Bob Berry was diagnosed with lung cancer.

Initially, he complained of shoulder pains and physicians later found out that he did have lung cancer. He underwent radiotherapy and chemotherapy but both failed to work and so he was given 18 months to live.

Eventually, he was put on a clinical drugs trial at Christie NHS Foundation trust in Manchester and he became one of the first people in the world to have had access to the medicine. The drug works in combination with immunotherapy treatment and this marks as the first time that it was used by humans.

In an interview with Manchester Evening News, Dr Matthew Krebs of The Christie, said:

“His most recent scans show that he’s had a complete response with no apparent trace of tumor in his body.

“We will need to monitor Bob closely with regular scans to assess how durable this response will be.”

Meanwhile, Bob couldn’t be any happier with the results.

He remarked:

“At the end of the day, this clinical trial at The Christie has extended my life and I couldn’t be more grateful. Anyone who is offered a clinical trial should seriously consider it.”

So happy for you, Bob! And yes, here’s hoping that this new drug will be made available to the public soon. Many cancer patients would benefit from this.

    It doesn’t prove anything. There are so many who got cured with meditation, yoga or Chinese Qigong too. It could be due to his own placebo effects.

Why Sin Eating Was Once The Worst Job In The World

Technically, it was a thankless job.

If you think you are unfortunate for having to hold on to a job that you think sucks, bear in mind that at one point in history, there were people who went the extent of risking their salvation just for money. For the so-called Sin Eaters then, it did not matter if they had to suffer eternal damnation in hell for as long they could eat and have some coins in their pockets.

While a Sin Eater is already a thing of the past, there is no questioning that it held the notion as being the worst job in England, Scotland, and Wales where it was practiced from the Middle Ages until the early 1900s. You see, a Sin Eater had to eat a piece of bread placed on the chest of a dying person, otherwise known as a sin-soaked bread, while the family of the would-be departing person watched, prayed, and drank a flagon of ale.

By eating the sin-soaked bread, it was believed then that a Sin Eater could absolve the dying person from his sins, and his chances of entering heaven would improve.

Touching Plane Crash Memorial Site Spotted via Google Maps

The incident claimed 170 lives and its memorial is beautifully haunting.

On September 19, 1989, international passenger plane UTA Flight 772 was en route from Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo to the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris. Tragically, the aircraft never made it to its destination as a bomb in the cargo hold blew up, causing it to break up over the Sahara desert.

The explosion, which later became known as the deadliest plane-related incidents in Niger, claimed the lives of all the 156 passengers and 14 crew members. French investigators later confirmed that it was an attack by Libyan terrorists.

Fast forward to 2007, Les Familles de l’Attentat du DC-10 d’UTA, an associated of the victims’ families, created a beautiful memorial for their departed loved ones. Now the said memorial is visible via Google Maps and Google Earth.
