My story this time comes from Mexico … Monterrey and Mexico City … highlighting a teenage son and his mother …
Julian Rios Cantu has recently hit the headlines through inventing a prototype bra … eliminating the need for a mammogram …
… the bra will detect cancer very early, by noticing the changes, particularly abnormal temperature, occurring in the breast.
|Here Julian is with Richard Branson - having won|
his award - c/o Higia Technologies
I’m not explaining this very well … but please read up about him.
He was determined to help his mother, and all mothers with (potential) breast cancer …
Apart from his dedication to overcome his dyslexia by studying obsessively, which then enabled him to better understand science – he became top of the class with interests in technology and robots.
He is inspirational … his motto on (that dreaded birdie thing!) twitter is:
|Monterrey, Mexico where the|
company is based.
The family are practical … but you do need to read his story – definitely worth it … totally admirable.
His mother still works to feed her family – Julian and his twin sister, Daniela – while having cancer medication and chemo …
|The prototype bra|
Julian has set up a company Higia Technologies with three of his smartest friends! This includes a brief introductory video … please listen …
It also notes some statistics … one of which is that over 1,700,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed every year … check the website – it is before you get to the video.
Let us take stock … GO DO …
… and then help others to GO DO …
We Are The World … In Darkness, Be Light
