UCLA oncologist and researcher Dr. Dennis Slamon is the creator of the promising breast cancer drug Herceptin.

Convinced that his revolutionary drug could effectively switch off cancer cells for women with tumors without radiation treatment, Dr. Slamon raised funds for his research.

Later, as Dr. Slamon attempted to cut through the bureaucratic red tape and get his drug approved, a number of brave patients who had volunteered for the clinical tests of Herceptin sadly succumbed to their cancer.

But all hope wasn't lost when the FDA finally approved the use of Herceptin to treat breast cancer, giving hope to millions of women.
