Hi everyone!

I’d like to take this time to introduce myself as the new blogger for the Battling for Health: Cancer site.  My name is Lesly, and I’ve spent the last eight years as a research scientist in the area of cancer cell biology and chemotherapeutics. This certainly doesn’t make me an expert in the field, but it did give me a lot of insight on how the science of cancer — the uncontrollable growth of cells caused by faulty signalling within and between them — can unearth new targets for novel treatments.  Incidentally, my wonderful husband is also a physician who specializes in cancer therapies, so I also get to hear a lot about how the treatment of cancer is viewed in a medical setting.

Having this unique prespective has led me to being fascinated by many things — the overwhelming number of people whose lives are affected by cancer in one way or another, the lightning-fast rate of truly exciting discoveries in cancer research, and the perseverance of both the scientific and medical communities to discover, test, and administer new cancer treatments are among them.  But I’m also fascinated by how difficult it can be for the huge pool of people interested in learning about cancer to receive quality information on the newest and most exciting breakthroughs.

My life’s career goal is to help bridge that discrepancy by providing as much accurate information about cancer and its treatment to as many people as possible. As the new blogger for Battling For Health: Cancer, I’m really quite honored and very grateful to find my new home on the HART-Empire Network.

Thanks for having me here, and I hope to see you soon!
