I know there are many I'd like to see in my life, but I'm going to choose one:

Cancer. Cancer because I have lost both of my grandpa's from it, one before I was born and the other 6 years ago on Christmas day 2010.


This is one of the many reasons why I'm doing whatever I can to support bio projects with my computer and hopefully with more computers as I get older.

Feel free to share what you want to see in your lifetime. Thanks for reading!

- Logan

Cure for mitochondrial defects. My little boy suffers from muscle weakness and the doctors suspect a lack of ATP in his mitochondria.

Thank you! Well, it could have been worse. He can walk and run, but has an ataxic gait, hyperlordosis, senso-motoric problems, learning handicap and dyspraxia. Some days are really physically demanding. But I love him even so :-*

Besides, I have bettered myself and worked into organic chemistry and neurology and hope to find a therapy for him (by the help of our attending physician) before myelination is complete. At present, we try to increase the ATP gain by changing to a low carb/ketogenic diet.

Heaven helps those who help themselves... hopefully.

Parkinsons; all male members of my family have been affected by it, grandfather is in late stages, father starting to show symptoms, chances are i'll have it in some form.
