DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Only a few short years ago, being told that you or someone close to you had cancer was a devastating piece of news that had the potential to completely destroy lives across the board. It is definitely not something that anyone ever expects or wants to hear, even today. While being told that you have this disease is still a scary prospect, there have been many advances in medicine and in the technology that is used to successfully treat various forms of cancer. As a direct result, many of the same types of cancer that regularly killed people 10 or 20 years ago are now successfully treated in a large number of patients.

In some cases, various forms of cancer have become so treatable that a person can receive treatment and continue on with having a regular life without anyone else even knowing that a problem exists. Examples of these types of cancer include both skin and prostate cancer. Unless extenuating circumstances are present, both forms are now easily treatable and patients can usually undergo treatment while still maintaining regular work schedules and meeting all of their personal and family obligations. In fact, many patients successfully undergo treatment for these diseases without anyone ever knowing that they have been diagnosed in the first place. Some even manage to live with various forms of the disease and have a relatively healthy lifestyle for several years.

Still other forms of cancer that are far more serious, such as lung cancer are now successfully treated in a large number of patients. This is especially true when the disease is caught early. Several years ago, a person that was diagnosed with lung cancer had virtually no hope of long-term survival. In the best case scenario, individuals who received this diagnosis could expect to live another year. Fortunately, this is no longer the case for most patients who are diagnosed with this disease. This is largely because of advancements in treatments that have been mainstays in battling cancer for decades. Patients still receive chemotherapy and radiation, but the treatments are conducted so that they are much more effective.

For instance, radiation therapy is now available that targets the specific tumor instead of targeting a large area of the body. This has a major impact on the overall health of the patient because the radiation itself makes no determination between destroying cancerous cells or destroying healthy tissue. The ability to target the problem area usually means fewer treatments for the individual and also means that those treatments will have better results. It dramatically reduces the side effects that occur with getting traditional forms of radiation. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed, this can make all the difference between staying relatively healthy throughout treatment and beating the disease, or getting sicker and sicker with each passing day.

There are also advancements when it comes to the way that chemotherapy is given to patients. These drugs have traditionally made patients extremely ill, often making them feel worse than the disease that they are meant to combat. New therapies that are designed to be given with chemotherapy drugs dramatically reduce the negative impact the drugs have on the body and allow the chemotherapy to do its job more effectively without causing adverse reactions throughout the entire body.

There are even more important advances in technology when it comes to treating various forms of cancer. Stem cell treatment has been used to some degree, but it is not yet mainstream and is still typically reserved only for special cases that are extremely severe where virtually everything else has been tried with little or no success. However, there are a number of newer treatments that are designed to target cancerous cells within the body as opposed to forcing the patient to undergo radiation. In some cases, this allows otherwise dangerous cancers to be treated with a single pill that is taken on a daily basis. As long as the patient takes these pills, they are able to live a relatively normal life. In some cases, they can be in complete remission in a relatively short period of time.

There is no doubt that cancer is still a frightening diagnosis and it requires that anyone who is diagnosed with it be vigilant about seeking out the best forms of treatment possible. If that person is you or someone you know, it is important to learn everything you can about your specific type of disease so that you can learn how it has been treated successfully in the past. There are advances in medical technology that are directly associated with the treatment of cancer which occur on a daily basis. This allows many people who would have otherwise not survived to be treated successfully and continue living normal lives. However, it is vitally important that research continue because there are still forms of the disease that are extremely deadly and as such, it is very difficult to treat them successfully. One example is pancreatic cancer. People who get this disease are typically unaware because it causes virtually no symptoms until it has become too late to successfully treat the disease.

This reflects the importance of creating better and more effective ways of screening for all forms of cancer. People that are successful in being diagnosed early on with pancreatic cancer have a much better chance of being successfully treated. There are advances in technology when it comes to screening patients, but it is not yet possible to screen a patient for every conceivable form of cancer with a single test. However, the amazing advances in technology that can dramatically increase the lifespan of a person who is diagnosed with a deadly form of cancer means that there is hope for all of those who have been diagnosed or who will be diagnosed at some point in their lives. When that person is someone that you love or you yourself are diagnosed, it takes on a new importance and you begin to understand the very unique implications of being able to develop comprehensive screening programs and follow-up treatments, regardless of the specific type of cancer that is present.
