             Pancreatic cancer is a killer  and one that is very hard to detect. One of the reasons its survival rate is so poor that it has few symptoms in the early stages.Partly spurred by the death of his uncle, 16-year-old scientist and researcher Jack Andraka vowed to find a quick and cheap way to test for signs of the disease.Andraka's research , including writing to 200 science professors – led to him developing  a dipstick diagnostic test which searches for a biomarker for pancreatic cancer.
             In my opinion, i think Andraka is a role role model for everybody and we need more teenagers in our society so we can have more joy in life.
