I love solving puzzles and unlocking mysteries. One of the biggest mysteries facing mankind is Cancer. I am most interested in Cancer research. I have decided to return college to acquire the knowledge needed to pursue a career in the field of Molecular Biology. After spending 15 years working in the Information Technology field, I wanted to do something more rewarding with my life. I have a gift of figuring things out when others have a difficult time doing so. I would like to apply my abilities to a new calling. I have been impacted by Cancer. I have lost family and friends to this disease. I believe a cure is possible and my goal is to become part of the process in finding a cure. Cancer doesn’t discriminate on who or what it chooses to kill. In 2013 alone 8.2 million people worldwide died from cancer. Scientist and medical experts expect that number to climb even higher in the decades to come. I am fully committed to join the cause of finding a cure. I have always held occupations that are in the service of others. More scientist and doctors will be needed in the future. As human population continues to grow so will the number people who will be impacted by cancer. I have chosen a path to protect life. My conviction is to make this cancers last century on our planet. My dream is a world without cancer.
