Reason To Smile -15 Year Old Boy Invents Cancer Test
This morning on our "Reason To Smile" segment we introduced you to Jack Andraka, a 15 year old boy from Crownsville, Maryland.
Sadly, Jack watched as a close family friend died of pancreatic cancer. Rather than accept it as fact of life, he chose to become proactive.Jack wanted to do something to make a difference.
And a difference he did. Jack created a cancer screening test for pancreatic cancer that was 168 times faster at detecting the onset, 26k times less expensive, and 400 times more sensitive than the 60 year old standard test.
Thank you for our "Reason To Smile" today Jack! You inspire us all to simply be proactive in being a better person!
