|Origins of Tech Cures Cancer:|
Falling in Love with Technology
In 1982 I was 24 years old. I remember sitting across from a loan officer at Marine Midland Bank in Buffalo, New York explaining why I needed $5,000 to buy this new thing called a Personal Computer. Would you make that loan? No, I wouldn’t either.
Thankfully, he did. I purchased a PC with 640K of memory, two big floppy drives, and a monochrome green monitor. I worked days selling M&M’s, and at night I worked my second job learning software and operating systems.
My goal was to eliminate paperwork that took a day a week. The irony of spending hundreds of hours to save a day a week escaped me. My life’s journey took its first left turn.
I was in love with technology.
|My Year For Curing Cancer|
I will donate my 2013 Atlantic BT salary to the Elizabeth Martin and Duncan Smith Story of Cancer Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit named for my parents.
The Foundation’s mission is to identify and build technology to help cure cancer and provide support for cancer patients, their families and friends.
