Well? I would have the hospital or whichever company let me live like a king for a month, then have them pay my family and friends millions for my loss and lastly have the company doing the procedure sell the treatment at affordable prices or give it away for people who can't afford it.

Maybe if I had blood cancer like that Facebook executive...
Otherwise it's suicide and I'm not trying to commit suicide.

No, not unless I'm terminally ill, or something.

If there was a guarantee that it was actually used to help people and not make a select few individuals richer then yeah probably.

Nope

Because I'm sure there will be something waiting around the corner much more worse than cancer.

In doing so there will be no money going into any cancer charities or some kind of collection, even treatments will not be necessary.

So where is the money going to go? Is it just going to not be needed anymore? Where will they get the money from? My cold dead body?

Oh no there is a much more darker result than one might think

That's easy - if I had the cure, and they needed to harvest it from me, get on in there, folks. Too many people die or live in misery until they die dealing with cancer, too many families have to deal with their loved ones being hurt and taken away. I've already had cancer tissue removed from me for research. If there were good odds that my death would mean others get a cure, I'd be all in.

Of course, we get down to a problem - cancer isn't just one disease. There isn't one cause, or one way it moves through the body. I doubt this scenario of one magic cure for all 'cancer' would ever possibly exist. But if there was such a cure, and it was in me.. yeah. I've seen enough death via cancer, I'd be happy to stop more of it from happening ever again.

I suppose I would do it after some time to make peace with it and settle my affairs. Cancer's killed a lot of my family. But, I also suppose they might not give me a choice in the matter.

Perhaps it's cynical, but given just how many people die every year from cancer, I wouldn't be surprised if I snuffed it due to "complications" during whatever procedure revealed that I held some kind of miracle cure.

Well here's the logic behind all of it. Even if my body had the cure for cancer in it, the body is not endless. Eventually it would be used up and the cure would be gone. If they could replicate the cure there would be no need to sacrifice me in the first place.

So not everyone would be cured. Knowing how the government works my body would most likely be put up on auction with the highest bidders getting the cure to do with whatever they want.

So no. I would not sacrifice myself for anyone.

Yes, on the condition that the world celebrate my sacrifice as the new Jesus and pray to me every day!

depends, if the cure can't be cured by the other two methods we currently have out that big pharma is hush hush about then I might think about it. guess, in the end, probably not. guess I'll take that one with me. after all, we're over populated enough as it is, nothing wrong with being greedy in some places. if I have to die, what's the purpose of asking for something, can't enjoy it while you're dead, and a short term enjoyment isn't enjoyment.
