Is there a gene for courage?

Pete is a survivor. After being diagnosed with cancer, he knew he was in for a fight. So, together with his doctor, Pete decided on a rigorous treatment plan that included breakthrough biomedicines.

We at Genentech salute his courage. Our commitment to helping people such as Pete can be seen in our long roster of innovative therapies. Therapies for serious conditions such as cystic fibrosis, heart attack and cancer. In fact, Genentech has developed more medicines than any other biotech company.

But, in the end, it's Pete who deserves most of the credit. Because, way down deep, where genes coexist with the human spirit, he really wants to live.
