If you had a choice, would you cure cancer or erase your own debt?

If you were given the chance to cure cancer for everyone affected, or erase your own debt, what would you choose? Keep in mind that you will not be monetarily rewarded for curing cancer, nor will you receive any recognition. Be honest, would you help others, or help yourself?

I would definitely cure cancer. I have a couple of aunts who have been faced with it, but luckily survived and got over the disease. It greatly affects others and it would be a good thing if it could be cured. If I truly had my way, I would want to cure HIV/AIDS. This also affects millions of people, especially young people and many people die from this as well. I just hope that one day we will have the answers to these horrible problems. Hopefully.

One more thing..I would make sure the cure is available to those that are of low income as well because they are affected too. Oftentimes only those that have the money and the access to health care are able to be treated for illnesses and that just isn't right.

Curing all the cancer patients is a great things. As a oncologist, i choose to cure cancer without any hesitation. Accomplishing this, you will be happy and memorized in the history. That is my honour to do this. On the other side, if you choose erase your own debt, you will feel guilty when your catch the patient with all kinds of suffering and their relatives's heart-broken. Not curing all the cancer, just one kind of cancer, is also great contribution the humna beings. Erase your own debt may make your released and happy some time, but in a long time, you will definitely endure more sufferring. That's my opinion. Look forward to the next communication.

I would cure cancer. People out there are dying every day and suffering. Its heart breaking. Especially when some are as young as a baby. I think if you have debt you should have to work to clean your own mess. I would rather cure cancer then erase my debt.
