The world lost a great innovator and visionary in Steve Jobs. In an article that compares him to Ford and Edison The Globe and Mail walks us through his legacy.
Jobs died of pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest forms of the disease and also one of the most under-funded in Canada in terms of research for early diagnosis and treatment. With less than 5% of those diagnosed surviving past the 5 year mark, why aren't there more aggressive campaigns to learn more about how this cancer develops and spreads? Jobs was only 56 when he passed.
