A Teen Idol

Here is my teen idol. His name is Jack. He is fifteen (15). And he invited a simple test that will detect pancreatic cancer early on. It may also be used to detect other cancers such as ovarian and lung cancers. All these cancers have one thing in common - they are hard to detect early enough to be treatable.

I first read about him on Opposing Views. I thought it was too good to be true but he is the lead story on Smithsonian.com. We need more Jacks. We need more blood tests to detect more ailments. Especially ones that are 90% accurate like his test is.
