We all know people who are living with, have recovered from, or have passed away due to cancer. It is the second leading cause of death in the United States, and is rapidly on its way to becoming the first. So many of us have been affected by this horrible disease, but don’t know what to do to help find a cure.
Well, here’s your chance to team up with other members of FoRT to help find a cure for cancer.
There is an amazing project funded by The University of Oxford called The United Devices Cancer Research Project. You might have heard of similar projects, where you volunteer your PC to help process data. In this case, it is helping find a cure for cancer.
The program runs as a screen saver, and only runs when the computer is not being used (you can have it run all the time, which I do, but the default is to only run as a screen saver). I have been running the program for over a year, and I have never had any problems with it. It is completely self-automated.
I “spoke” with John, and he agreed this would be a great idea for members of FoRT to team together and make a difference in the fight against cancer, so I have created a FansOfRealityTV.com team!
The website for the project is at http://www.grid.org/projects/cancer
There, you can read about the project and download the program. Just click on Download Now! and it will walk you through the process. After registering, you can join the team! Just go to the “member services” section of the website, then click on the “teams” link on the left sidebar. Search for FansOfRealityTV.com and then join!
Join up and let’s defeat cancer!
