Okay, standardized test scores have shown me my whole life that I excel in math first, then writing; am significantly above average in reading; and am abysmal in science. I’m talking in the 30-35% range – meaning 65-70% of students my age all around the country would test better than me in that subject. Consistently. Of course, early scores like that didn’t exactly boost my confidence, so I spent the majority of my school years devising elaborate cheating systems, kissing up to teachers, and finding easier science courses in an effort not to let grades in science classes drag down my GPA. Now, that’s all gonna haunt me as I try to break down the science behind these 2-3 cancer vaccines that are being used on me here.
CANCER VACCINE #1 – DENDRITIC
(which I got for the first time on Monday)
Yesterday, I actually got to see my own blood cells under a microscope. This is what they looked like, and Dr. Rubio, Sr. confirmed that the round ones were the cancer cells, and the long skinny ones were my healthy cells. When I saw them under the microscope, they were all just kind of hanging out together. This, of course, isn’t normal. Typically, my healthy cells should be moving around, looking for bacteria and other unhealthy things to attack, in order to keep my body healthy. However, because of this protein casing that surrounds the cancer cells, my own cells don’t even realize that they’re there. The cancer cells basically have an invisible cloak that hides them and allows them to move freely about my body. We all have cancer cells in our bodies; the only difference between me and you is that my cancer cells have been activated. When Dr. Rubio, Sr. took my blood the first day I was here, he discovered that 88% of all the cancer cells in my body are active right now. That’s a lot.
What this first vaccine does is go in and poke holes inside the protein casings. Holes then make the cancer cells visible to my healthy cells, and now my healthy cells know there is work to be done. My healthy cells then develop these long finger-looking strands (called dendrites) that reach into the holes and attack the cancer cells.
CANCER VACCINE #2 – MAGNETIC NANOPARTICLES
(which I will get this Monday)
First, Dr. Rubio, Sr. will attach magnets on the outside of my body, where there is cancer: my back, my hips, possibly my lungs. Then, he will insert this vaccine. This vaccine has magnetic nanoparticles that spin around inside the body so fast, it heats up the area by about 50°. This increased temperature is intolerable to the cancer cells, so they start dying.
CANCER VACCINE #3 – VIRAL TRANSFECTION
This is Dr. Rubio, Sr.’s “back pocket” vaccine that he will only use if my body is not responding adequately to the other vaccine(s). Quite frankly, I’m not ready to share what this one involves because it kind of freaks me out a little. We’ll cross that bridge if we get to it.

Science nerd friends, how did I do?
