I'M SAWYER.

MY DAD HAS BRAIN CANCER.

 

I NEED YOUR HELP.

My goal is to do 1,000 years of cancer research before

my Dad’s next birthday in

September 2020.

 

Your spare computing power can help me do this. 

Your computer and IBM's World Community Grid makes this possible.

Security - Common Questions

Can I be sure IBM really runs World Community Grid?

 

I recommend you Google World Community Grid. You will see the main site run by IBM and the Wikipedia page talking about the research. Once you feel comfortable, please be sure to visit the How to Join page on my website. This will ensure you join Sawyer's Cancer Fighting Network on the official World Community Grid. In order to join my team, you must use the link on the How to Join page.

World Community Grid isn't merely funded by IBM - it is managed and run by IBM staff. IBM often promotes World Community Grid on IBM.com. Here is info from IBM concerning World Community Grid and why they have sponsored it since 2004:

Can I be sure the software is what it says it is?

 

All the World Community Grid software is digitally signed, which verifies it's authenticity. The BOINC software is signed by the University of California.

 

Can I be sure the software has no known vulnerabilities?

 

IBM does regular security audits of the software. This includes the agent software that you download and the project software written by the scientists.

How is the grid kept safe?

 

The World Community Grid servers are located in a secure IBM data center. Their physical security is as good as it gets. All the communication between World Community Grid and your computer uses SSL. This is the same level of encryption used by websites for online shopping and banking.

 

Since September 2019 we've done

241 years, 338 days, 3 hours

of cancer research

I need your help to reach

1,000 YEARS OF CANCER RESEARCH by my Dad's next birthday

in September 2020


 

as of 12/14/19

THE GOAL

Hi, my name is Sawyer and I'm 13 years old. My dad has brain cancer - and I need your help. My dad was lucky. He had emergency brain surgery, a second awake brain surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Treatment is ongoing. I need your help to find the next treatment and help cure my dad.

 

Cancer researchers need to analyze billions of cancer markers using computers. Without enough computer power, research can often take decades. With access to your spare computer power as part of Sawyer's Cancer Fighting Network, breakthroughs can be made in months, not years.

 

My goal is to do 1,000 years of cancer research before my Dad’s next birthday in September 2020. Your spare computing power can help me do this. Please sign up today.
