115 - It's Podcast Friday with Science Writer Jessica Wapner and The Philadelphia Chromosome

Cancer is a scary topic and today's podcast guest - Science Writer Jessica Wapner - brings us a new book (The Philadelphia Chromosome) that brings hope in the fight against cancer.  This book is a great story about a new way of fighting cancer using just a pill - yep, no chemotherapy or radiation treatments necessary - and it has a 85% effectiveness!  Ms. Wapner was kind enough to squeeze us into her schedule right before she flew back home, so join us for this great discussion that hopefully is the future of cancer treatments!  (And a big thanks goes to Huffines Institute Affiliate Dr. Penny Riggs who arranged Ms. Wapner's visit, talk, and travel to College Station and helped facilitate this podcast! Thanks Penny!)
