These treatments, as well as the research surrounding cancer, generate millions of dollars each year for the medical industry, with a typical cancer patient spending on-average $50,000 to treat the disease. Despite the resources devoted to fighting cancer, two of every three people diagnosed with cancer will die from it within five years.
