The Cancer Pioneer Jack Andraka, a 16-year-old from Maryland, lost a close friend to pancreatic cancer, an aggressive cancer that typically goes undetected until it's too late to treat. Determined to do something to fight back against the disease, Jack committed himself to finding a way to help the 40,000 people in the U.S. who die of pancreatic cancer each year. Previous tests for pancreatic cancer were too expensive to be used routinely. Jack worked with a lab at Johns Hopkins to develop a simple, inexpensive paper strip test that can detect heightened levels of a protein in the blood which is a strong indicator of cancer. Jack has applied for a patent on the test and hopes that it will become a part of routine health exams.
