Very unfortunately my friend and neighbour who is just 19 years old has colorectal cancer. He was undergoing radiation therapy but his chance of survival has dropped from 90% to 35% after his tumors got infected. His doctors (in the Netherlands) say that they will try more radiation and chemotherapy but with the 35% chance of survival that his doctors told him recently he seems to have lost some hope. I was wondering if there are any options that we are not looking at.
He is a very bright kid who has the potential to be a great hacker :) HN, tell me how we can hack his chances of survival.
