Ideas that Inspire are Worth Sharing
Click the link above to watch how one boy might have found the best way to treat Pancreatic Cancer.
What makes this short film so inspiring?
What if I told you this young sophomore, Jack Andraka , happens to have an Idea to detect Pancreatic Cancer in its early stages. For starters, it has 2% survival rate in 85% of pancreatic cancer cases. The current method of diagnosing pancreatic cancer is outdated by 60 years , making it difficult to cure.
Because of this dilemma Jack thought that the best cure is in the accurate and early diagnosis itself. By far, Jack claims his method (using Nano-Tubes ) to be more accurate, sensitive, cost effective, and can be run on a patients within 5 minutes; similar to using diabetes test strips if you will. Though his claims are without criticisms, the medical community has high hopes for his method.
