Keven Stonewall Is On His Way To Finding A Cure For Cancer

19 year old Stonewallhopes to one day create a vaccine that will eradicate colon cancer. The Chicago South Side youth has already started working on a potential cancer cure at a Rush University laboratory.
The youth’s love of science began back in fifth grade, when he became fascinated by the appearance of cells under a microscope. Stonewall’s love of the sciences grew to such extremes that one Christmas he was gifted four microscopes by his parents who are educators. It was during his freshman year at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences that Stonewall began focusing on the need for the eradication of colon cancer.  He watched not only a dear friend’s uncle succumb to the disease but witnessed first hand how the illness negatively impacted his school mate, telling DNAInfo Chicago, “Cancer has taken over a whole bunch of lives, and I felt like I needed to step up and do something about it.”
Stonewall was a senior in high school when he jumped on the opportunity to do an internship at the university, which is the academic arm of the Rush Medical Center.  He worked in the lab with a professor who taught immunology/microbiology and general surgery. Stonewall began to consume literature about how a chemotherapeutic agent could possibly destroy certain cancer cells while still promoting a healthy immune response.
The young researcher, who has already won numerous awards for his research and was a finalist for theIntel International Science and Engineer Fairlast year, then began testing his potential vaccine on mice. He injected a concentrated amount of the cancer-treating drugMitoxantronein younger and older mice. Stonewall then injected the rodents with aggressive colon cancer cells.
Stonewall waited three days to check out the effects of his experiment: The younger mice benefitted from the vaccine as their cancer was in fact eradicated and they had developed immunity.  The older mice were still ridden with the cancerous tumors.
“[He] should be heralded for helping to develop more effective colon cancer treatments that will impact the elderly, the population that is most susceptible to colon cancer.  He has all the tools. He will go far.”
Stonewall, who is now a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, is still working on the vaccine that he prays will one day be tested on humans.  The young man is keeping hope alive that his work will in fact be the answer to a dreaded disease that has taken the lives of many, so until then, he tells the New York Daily News, “If you don’t plan to succeed, you’re planning to fail.”

Don’t buy this shirt, FCKH8 is a terrible company. They’re essentially trying to profit off of Mike Brown’s death, they’re a for profit t-shirt company, not an organization, and a lot of the money they receive is unaccounted for. People have complained about not getting their orders, also they don’t directly state which charities they donate to. See blog stopfckh8 for more details and reasons why you should never give them your money.

I support the message but not the company. Watch the video HERE.

I also support the message NOT the company.

Earn Your Rayas

Due to the summer heat I haven’t been wearing blazers/sports coats like I want to. But for the past few weeks it’s been feeling like fall. The humidity has gone down and cool breeze has been on the rise. So i felt like this was the perfect time to showcase how you can style a sports coat if your city is cooling down as well. This is a super casual look that’s great for a stroll through your city or a date night with your significant other. When it comes to wearing a t-shirt under a blazer, either go simple with a neutral color like grey or white, or add some funk with a striped or polka-dot tee. What do you think of todays look?

Outfit Details: Salmon Sports Coat, Salvation Army -$2.50 || Factory Driggs Jeans by J.Crew -$36 || Men’s Striped T-Shirt Navy Voyage by Merona - $13 || Buckingham Buc  by G.H. Bass -$98

Monochrome

I love wearing black and white during the summertime.  I really love how women effortlessly pull off wearing black and white as well, which is what inspired this outfit. I kept this look simple by styling the shoes around a classic t-shirt and pair of jeans, followed by a grey sweatshirt tied around my waist, which I thought was a cool finishing touch to the outfit. What do you think of today’s look ?

Outfit Details:  Factory Driggs Jeans by J.Crew -$36 ||  Men’s Crew Neck T-Shirt  by Merona - $13 || Grey Sweatshirt by Eddie Bauer, Goodwill -$4.29 || Saddle Shoes by Florshem -$40

Talk about a clean and minimal collection of shoes, Feit did their thing for the fall and winter of 2014. You never really understand simplicity until you’ve seen it done right, and the hi and low-top bicolor sneakers up top are calling my name. Be sure to visit FEIT and check out what else they  have to offer for both Men and Women from their previous catalogs
