A question in regards to your discussion on the new cancer treatment.
My son has bilateral retinoblastoma it is a genetic type. The chances of secondary cancer is high.
How would this treatment work in a case where cancer forms at different times? How would it effect the fact that it's in his DNA?
If the white blood cells remember that cancer is bad would this coding be passed onto his children?
