Twitter has gone all philanthropist over the remembrance of the death of Steve Jobs exactly one year ago Friday.
A fundraising group called iCancer has started a campaign to raise money in order to begin human trials of a revolutionary cancer therapy that currently exists on ice in a lab in Sweden. The treatment is actually a virus, but iCancer believes that if the therapy is tested and developed further, it could do much to prolong the lives of those suffering with a neuroendocrine tumor, the exact type that Steve Jobs suffered, and ultimately died, from.
The iCancer team wants to raise £2 million to begin testing, encouraging companies to invest in the therapy that is currently shelved because it isn’t considerd profitable.
The virus’ creator, Professor Magnus Essand, says that £2 million is the price-tag that needs paid in order to fully develop the treatment.
