Speech of the Week

Jorge Soto

Early Cancer Detection Prototype

delivered October 2014

"Almost a year ago, my Aunt started suffering back pains.  She went to see the doctor and they told her it was a normal injury for someone that had been playing tennis for almost 30 years.  They recommended her to do some therapy but after a while, she was not feeling better."

"So finally, they decided to do a biopsy and two weeks later, the results of the biopsy came back.  It was a Stage 3 lung cancer.  Her lifestyle was almost free of risks.  She never smoked a cigarette, she never drank alcohol and she has been playing sports for almost half her life.  Perhaps that is why it took them almost six months to get her properly diagnosed."

"Not only did that cancer diagnosis change the life of our family but that process of going back and forth with new tests, different doctors describing symptoms, discarding diseases over and over, was stressful and frustrating especially for my Aunt."

"Today, most of us have to wait for symptoms to indicate that something is wrong.  Today, the majority of people still donít have access to early cancer detection methods even though we know that catching cancer early is basically the closest thing we have to a silver bullet cure against it."

"We know that we can change this in our lifetime and that is why my team and I have decided to begin this journey -- this journey to try to make cancer detection at the early stages and the monitoring the appropriate response at the molecular level easier, cheaper, smarter and more accessible than ever before."
