This details one of the things that seems to be hard to explain to people when you are talking about cancer. Cancer isn't one disease, but over 140 different diseases under one category. Asking why we haven't cured cancer yet is asking why we haven't cured bacteria yet.

The important thing, clinically speaking, though... this may lead to a long hoped for ability of doctors to tailor treatments to the specific type and subtype of cancer, leading to a better response the first time a patient is treated.
