On further incentive for the cure of cancer (or any other medical condition) is that many people have a family member or friend who is currently suffering from cancer in one form or another, and there is certainly a desire to help those people if they can. There are many anecdotal stories of people who move into medical research because they had a close family member who was afflicted or died, and they want to prevent it from happening to others. This is different from, but shares aspects of, the 'hero' incentive imo.
