Author and former RadCon Guest of Honor Jay Lake is dying of terminal colon cancer. He’s using some of his last time and energy in a clinical trial at the National Institutes of Health, where the fan-funded Whole Genome Sequencing data generated last year is helping for the very first time ever further target a cutting edge immunotherapy technique. This may buy Lake some more time now, and will absolutely help future cancer patients. While the National Institutes of Health does not charge patients for services, Lake is still shouldering extensive travel and living expenses for his family and caregivers. This auction will help defray some of those costs.
