The collective accomplishments thus displayed place you in a class by yourself. (Letter from the Academy to Mr. Chaplin, dated February 19, 1929.)]|

Doesnt a normal cell die and stop dividing when the telomeres run out Not exactly. Fraying of telomeres can result in the cells stopping performing their function properly but that doesn’t really stop cancer from being cancer; it could just be the difference between a tumor that creates a hormone or lavender scented soap Part of what makes cancer what it is includes the normal functions which would tend to limit the growth of cells being disabled, which includes normal cellular senescence. Some cancers then are biologically immortal. An example is a sample of ovarian cancer which has been grown in labs for test samples for a very long time (and without the express permission of the donor which is its own issue). Even after the donor died from old age the samples continue on.
