Today in our Cancer Hero Spotlight series, we’d like to present to you our hero of the month, Dr. Hadiyah Green. Thank you for the relentless fight you’ve endured and for continuing to be on the frontlines of this war to help cure this deadly disease. This is a battle we definitely ALL want to WIN!
Dr. Hadiyah Nicole Green dedicated herself to fighting cancer when her aunt and uncle – who raised her, both died from it. While working towards a doctorate degree in Physics, Green began reading about how technology could be used to kill cancer cells.
She then dedicated numerous years of her life towards hands-on work and research. The end result was the development of a laser technology using nanoparticles that destroyed cancer cells without affecting healthy cells.
