    Someone needs to give this chick at least a billion dollars. Then again, she'd probably never work again if she got that much money and we need more people like this out there working, discovering these major breakthroughs in treatment to serious diseases.

    The amount of lives a treatment to cancer would save would be unbelievable and think about how much it would stimulate our economy. Families not having to dish out hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills, etc. etc.

    Well seeing as Cancer is a Multi-BILLION dollar industry(with a cure given out eradicating that profit), in addition to the fact that the Earth's all natural cures for it are being suppressed as is, it's perfectly understandable why she only recieved 100k, among other facts.......

    I'm pretty sure if there was a cure found, there would be no way to keep that hush hush. Think about the money that could/would still be made by selling the cure/vaccine.

    Totally useless. Those who in power aren't interested in prolonging the lives of common people.

    Great post. Thanks for sharing. It's a shame that she only got 100K though. That's not even the cost of 1yr of cancer treatment. She should have been given 10's of millions or more for such a landmark discovery.

    She submitted her work to a science competition for high school students. I'm surprised they gave out such a good prize. Had she submitted her work elsewhere she may have gotten more for it.

    As others have said, cancer is a HUGE industry. Imagine the blow to the economy if the industry was shut down with a cure. Who would profit if it came out that something like mustard seeds cured cancer? A few farmers maybe. Who would profit if that information was suppressed? Many many people.

    This girl did something incredible and it looks like the story is going viral, which is super awesome. Thanks for posting.

    Thank you for sharing this article. Cancer is certainly getting out of control. I lost my uncle earlier this year to cancer and just thinking about it pissing me off soo much. It's so senseless. It amazes me that a cure has not yet been found. So glad to hear though that advancements are being made.

    This girl is no doubt a genius but to be honest i think the fact that she was able to come up with this before any professional research team shows that not nearly enough money is invested into cancer research, or worse there is some kind of conspiracy going on and the government is not letting these advancements happen because they are banking from the insane costs of cancer treatment.

    I think the optimal solution for the scumbags would be to develop a total cure (i.e completely eradicating cancer and leaving you symptomless, and totally healthy) and requires you to continue taking it monthly or whatever

    Cancer was cured in the 30's by Dr. Rife. His Rife machine was proven to cure terminally ill cancer patients. B17 aka laetrile burst cancer cells. You people need to wake up

    the fact that the power that be control all the major media outlets schools and institutions tells me that this story is pure bullshit this is media rating propaganda because such info would never get out of government controlled institutions

    besides i am already sure they had cures for cancer already i think this might actually be an attempt to introduce it out to the public i onced read an article that said that the government has underground research labs with the brightest people working their then when something is developed or reverse engineered they would use someone as a scapegoat to introduce it out to the public by making up some success stories example of scapegoats are tom from myspace and mark from facebook and so on and so on so whenever something major is introduce or announced don't believe the fairy tail stories inteligent forces are behind them remember they own the major news media etc:D
