How Big Data is Battling the Big C

I shouldn’t be here. That’s the simple fact of the matter. At age 44, I was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of prostate cancer that had already reached Stage 4.

When the cancer started growing again a year later, I had pretty much run out of options. Facing my own mortality, I decided to go back to work at Intel, transferring into the health and life sciences division in the hopes that I could make my final days count.
