“A disease that… can attack a person in perfect health, in the full vigor of early maturity, and in some insidious, mysterious way, within a few months, destroy a life, is surely a subject important enough to demand our best thought and continued study.”

-Dr. William Coley, on the cancer death of patient Elizabeth Dashiell, age 18 years, addressing the NY Academy of Medicine in 1891
