To think that scientists spending millions of dollars to find more about cancer, a 15 year old finds out by doing a science fair project. The government and major corporations don't like competition. But unfortunately for them, the next generation does!

"Through this I learned one really important lesson: 
That through the internet anything is possible.  You don't have to be a professor with multiple degrees to have your ideas valued.  Regardless of your age, ethnicity, gender, whatever, it's just your ideas.
What is really important to me, what I find really important about internet, is that instead of posting duck-face pictures of yourself or taking pictures of your food & posting them on instagram, you could be changing the world.   I did all my research on google & wikipedia.  
...
the internet is becoming accessible to 3.5 billion more people.  & when they have access to that internet, they could be like me.  There are millions more of me out there.
When I started this research I didn't even know I had a pancreas.
So if a 15year old that didn't know he had a pancreas could develop a sensor that detects pancreatic cancer that costs 3c & 5 mins to run, imagine what those 3.5 billion people could do, & imagine what you could do.
