Hello everyone! My name is Kevin Guo. I am currently a sophomore in Great Valley High School. I like cross country running, karate, and music in my spare time. At school, I have taken AP Biology and am currently taking AP Chemistry. These courses have prepared me to engage in scientific research in biomedical sciences. Over the past few years, I participated and won several awards in Chester County and DVSF Science Fairs. Some projects that I have undertaken include evaluating the cytotoxic effects of artificial food dyes using Daphnea Magna as a model and studying the cytotoxic effects of antibody-gold nanoparticle complex on breast cancer cells over expressing HER2. These science fair projects have inspired me in my passion for science.
I developed a passion for cancer research when I was a member of Junior National Honor Society and was involved with activities sponsored by Breast Cancer Awareness. During my involvement there, I heard so many devastating stories about patients who not only suffered from the malignancy of cancer but also left family and friends with unrelenting sorrow when the patients lost the battle. I have also had several people in my life losing their loved ones to cancer. My grandmother is currently battling with late stage lung cancer and suffers from side effects of chemotherapy. These stories made me sad and have motivated me to take on cancer research projects to make a difference and help patients to stand up to cancer.
I am launching a campaign to cover expensive reagents much needed for the project aimed to improve the efficiency of cancer radiation therapy with reduced side effects. Your contribution will make an impact. Even if you don’t donate directly, you can support my project by sharing my website link through social media or email to your friends. With the support from people like you, our cause to help cancer patients will become a reality.
