    This bright young gal is incredibly smart and talented! I expect we'll be hearing more about her in the future!

    Congrats to Brittany Wenger!

    Lightbulb Brittany's APP detects Malignant Tumors!

    Since WS is predominately female members, I'm surprised that this story hasn't generated more views and no likes.

    This 17 year old gal, Brittany Wenger, taught her computer to detect malignant tumors (breast cancer) with about a 99% success rate! No one thinks this is exciting?

    Lightbulb moment! Let me provide a youtube link to an ABC story about Brittany's Google Award, as maybe that was the problem! I hear Fox News is not well received by some folks around here.

    If you like this story, how about a for Brittany Wenger?

    Frankly, the Fox News story & interview of Brittany is far better.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Can't see or hear the videos at work, but from what Liz has said this is great. Hope that means no more radiated images and smashing of tender areas.

    Keep up the good work Brittany and Thank You!

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    We have had some pretty in depth discussions on this site about young people and the culture of entitlement that seems to come with many teens nowadays.

    I am always excited to see a story about a teen with goals, aspirations and the motivation to pursue them.

    Good for you Brittany! Thank you for your contribution!

    All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; The point is to discover them.

    Thumbs up

    Not only is Brittany's discovery fantastic in and of itself, the procedure is less invasive and less expensive!!
