Cancer research to a higher level

Stephen Friend has been of great importance for cancer research and has raised research to a higher level. He also ensured that cancer treatments are more effective. He provided better treatments and thus a better quality of life for patients. We are impressed by his effort to teach people how to take care of their own health. He builds communities of citizens and patients who learn from each other. Healthcare therefore achieves higher standards.
