The ‘Fire with Fire’ cancer documentary created by General Electric features an incredible, bio-engineered step forward in the world of health care. Showcasing a particular case, a 6 year-old girl named Emma, this video shows how thinking outside the box in the medical world can lead to life-changing results.

The doctor on the video explaining the remarkable change in the way they went about treating Emma is Carl H. June of the University of Pennsylvania. He explains how they bio-engineered HIV cells, or "serial killer" cells, to actually attack areas that are infected with a tumor. Though it was a risky move, it was performed on a patient that, medically, could not get much worse without actually dying. Today Emma is healthy and alive thanks to this amazing procedure.
