There are many different forms of cancer as it can affect a person’s lungs, skin, brain or bones. Cancer treatments have been going on for decades and decades. It feels like a never ending battle that can’t be won, but over the past decade, there have been some innovative new treatments introduced to the market. One of the drugs is known as ADCETRIS, and it delivers a killing blow to cancer cells. It does so by injecting powerful medications into the cancerous cell itself.
