I encourage all visitors to this page to take a few minutes to learn about how you can become involved in a global effort to find cures for all types of cancer and other terrible diseases. It you can do so free with your computer!
Just imagine one day not having concern for a life changing illness that is terminal or significantly impacts the quality of your or a loved ones' remaining years.
Well, it is why I became involved with the World Community Grid, the world's largest public computing research grid tackling projects that benefit humanity . . . and created the associated team CureNow.
World Community Grid enables anyone with a computer, smartphone or tablet to donate their unused computing power to advance cutting-edge scientific research on topics related to health, poverty and sustainability. Through the contributions of over 650,000 individuals and 460 organizations, World Community Grid has supported 22 research projects to date, including searches for more effective treatments for cancer, HIV/AIDS and neglected tropical diseases. Other projects are looking for low-cost water filtration systems and new materials for capturing solar energy efficiently.
And while I would have become a proud member of the World Community Grid upon learning about its mission ... I had very personal reasons too ... as with many other members ... having family members and friends impacted by cancer and other debilitating illness ... including my oldest son surviving cancer and one of my nieces dying from leukemia when she was only 20 years old.
Then in 2012 ... my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer with a genetic marker that placed recurrence in the highest bracket. I firmly believe the World Community Grid research efforts assisted in the development of new genetic testing and treatments for breast cancer that benefited my wife... with a new drug keeping recurrence below 10%. (Without the new genetic test, the marker would have been missed and she would have been considered cancer free with a minimum chance of recurrence ... But would most likely be in stage 3 or 4 when the recurrence was discovered.)
AND SINCE YOU ARE VISITING THIS PAGE . . . it means that you already qualify to become involved . . . as you have a computer (desktop, laptop, or tablet) and internet access.
So, please now become involved with this global effort that only needs some of your "unused computer time" by...
Registering with "World Community Grid" and selecting CureNow as your team.
The final registration step is the downloading and installing the "free" non-evasive software program, "BOINC" . . . that works like a screen saver, only using a computer's resources when it would otherwise be idle and relinquishing the resources back to the users when they start using their computers again.

The computational power to perform research of this scale is only available through the generosity of patriots like you!
And just imagine the possibility of the collective efforts being the collective efforts being the difference of saving thousands (or millions) of lives including those even yet to be born!
I look forward to you becoming a member of CureNow when you register with the World Community Grid.
