A young boy named Jack Andraka from Crownsville, Maryland has found a one hundred percent accurate test for pancreatic cancer. How can this be?
Jack watched a family friend die of this type of cancer and decided to try his best to do something to help others. He did some research and noticed that a very big issue was the lack of tests that could detect these cancers early on. This led Jack to begin attempting to create a test of his own. Somehow though this young boy was actually able to succeed.
Jack was able to develop a test that worked even better than any currently existing one. One that is less expensive, more sensitive, and faster. How amazing is that? Good job Jack!
