Jack Andraka_15 Year Old Creates Pancreatic Cancer Test

Continuing the genius posts.....

The test he invents is very cost effective and highly sensitive to detect the cancer.

His elation at hearing that he won the $75,000 science prize is absolutely wonderfully priceless:


Proud!   ;D

While getting an MRI this week of my cervical and lower back, I asked tech why don't they just scan the middle part of my body while they're at it, and since I fought off a panic attack in the coffin-like machine, as many do.  I specifically mentioned pancreatic cancer and how it goes on until too late.  I meant for everyone, especially those older than I.  Why not have it done, while you're at it.  It could also detect issues with other organs early.  I got the response that it wouldn't cost any more or much more, but a doc would have to order it.  So, it would be nice to see a test developed.  Good for him.
