Why can't we all get together and find a cure to all terminal diseases?

I have not done enough research on collaboration between research centers but I promise to read all of your comments, since I am mostly asking this question to learn from you.

One of my dreams is to be able to witness an international collaboration and a public commitment from top research centers to find a cure to terminal diseases and to distribute the cure for free to people in need.

Do you think that there is a competition between research centers and scientists? Do you think that some groups are more focused on finding a cure to make money rather than finding a cure to save lives? I would love to know what you think.

    May 21 2013: There already is a cure and your Mother and real doctors have been telling you since you were born but you will not listen. Even after getting several diseases through out your life, you will not listen.
    Even after you bury your parents and friends who die from diseases you will not listen.
    Even when you are shown the data you will not listen.
    During your lifetime you have been told the cure thousands of times and still you will not listen.
    Even Doctors who study for many years to perfect their profession will not listen.
    The government and corporations all know the cure and make tons of money by ignoring the truth so why would they listen?
    Are you ready to listen yet?
    I will be happy to tell you one more time but it will do no good unless you are ready to listen.
    Eat fresh fruit and drink your vegetables! Simple, easy, economical ... even a poor farmboy like me can do it.

        Jun 1 2013: Olivier it is a lot harder to fill your stomach with stuff you know is going to make you sick and die. I never said eat your vegetables, I said drink your vegetables. A blender or juicer will help immensely. You may want to check out some Vegan sites, they show lots of ways to eat fresh raw fruit and vegetables. Think of it this way, your healthy life depends on it. Wouldn't you like to be as strong or as fast as Carl Lewis??
