KickStarter campaign hopes to fund an anti-cancer virus.
The campaign is hoping to raise US$1,000,000 to fund the development of potential treatment for neuroendocrine tumours, or NET - the same cancer that killed Steve Jobs.

The potential therapy, a cancer-busting virus, is currently sitting in a freezer in Sweden – but it can’t be tested for lack of just £2million.
Without the money, the research will cease and the virus will be thrown away, placing in jeopardy a therapy that could significantly extend the lives of thousands of NET cancer sufferers.
Big business won’t stump up the £2million needed to fund the first stage of clinical trials, because there is no money to be made. The Swedish research team, led by Prof Magnus Essand from Uppsala University, were so keen to collaborate and share the findings they published the research.
But now it is out in the public domain it can’t be protected by the patent that would have enabled business backers to make a profit.
We want to raise enough money to enable Prof Essand and his team to conduct clinical trials on their groundbreaking cancer eating virus. £1 million will enable him to do it - £2 million will enable him to do it really well.
