Who are the greedy people in the cancer business?

Curious about funding for research. It seems to me on one hand research’s have their hand out for donated funds. Then after it shows some promise they partner with private investors they soon have their hand in our pocket for profit. My treatment cost $13000 for 30 days up from $10000. Why do charity’s give away the public position? Why is so much effort spent on drugs that have no chance for a cure? Does anyone find the proposal people with a to charge a fee for every year a patient is disease free greedy ?
