The term “self-made” is often used these days. In fact, it would be safe to class it as a cliché. However, few people on this earth embody the true meaning of the phrase more than George Soros. Mr. Soros grew from relative obscurity to become the most successful hedge fund manager in the world. With an estimated net worth of $25 billion, Mr. Soros has been a permanent fixture on Forbes’ list of most wealthy individuals over the past decade. That said, Mr. Soros’s wealth is not the most fascinating thing about him – it is his giving. Over the years, he has made significant contributions to the lives of thousands through direct acts of philanthropy and indirectly through political engagements targeted at preserving democracy.Born less than two decades before the commencement of the Second World War to a Hungarian Jewish family, George Soros did not have the easiest of childhoods.
Unlike millions of other Jews in Hungary, he was able to make it through the war physically unscathed. He, however, could not avoid the emotional pain, which in many ways would influence the philanthropic and political contributions he would make decades later. Shortly after the war, he moved to London to further his education. He was consecutively awarded a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in science at the London School of Economics. A job at Friedlander, a bank based in London, followed soon after. He then made the journey to the United States to joined famed brokerage firm, F.M. Mayer. After a brief stint at the company, he then joined Wertheim and Co, another brokerage firm. The big guns thereafter came calling with Arnhold and S. Bleicheroeder offering him the Vice President position. He held the post for a decade before deciding to move on and form his own hedge fund.
Much of Mr. Soros’s philanthropic engagements thus far have been targeted ensuring the protection of individual’s civil rights and freedoms. This is not surprising given that he is heavily involved in political efforts to safeguard America’s democratic principles. In fact, it is estimated that his first philanthropic act of worth came in the 1970s when he assisted African students in apartheid South Africa to gain admission into the University of Cape Town. Over the course of his life, Mr. Soros is estimated to have donated close to half of his current net worth, $12 billion towards charitable causes.George Soros is an individual to be celebrated. For a man of his stature, he did not have to provide the philanthropic and political contributions he has made over the years. Nonetheless, despite being in a comfortable position, he chose to be directly involved in engagements that would arguably benefit others more than they would him. As such, we would be better placed if Mr. Soros continued with his current endeavors for many years to come.

Curing cancer is complex and requires countless man hours of research and clinical data to be passed between researchers and doctors. All that vital data needs to be analyzed and delivered somehow, to doctors trying to cure cancer patients. For example, if a cancer researcher is analyzing a group of breast cancer patients taking Herceptin, they will examine and record why the drug apparently only works on 40% of the patients and not the rest! Many questions are examined as to what other factors could be involved in preventing that 60% who failed the cure. Could it be that perhaps diabetes or some other illness is involved, and is preventing the cure? Are these “incurable” patients taking some other medicines (drugs) that are interfering? These are the vital bits of information that researchers and doctors need to bridge between each other.
Mr. Eric Lefkofsky is an entrepreneur who is hot on the trail of solving exactly these sorts of challenges. He was personally motivated to start up a cancer research company called Tempus after his dear wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Tempus is a technology company that has developed an operating system which helps bridge such vital data between researchers and doctors, to help in effectively treating cancer. According to Mr. Lefkofsky (Fortunate Brainstorm Health Conference in San Diego), there is a lack of resources that help combine genetic data with therapeutic data. Lefkofsky says, “Gathering molecular data is one thing, but you also need clinical [patient] data. You [also] need therapeutic and outcome response data.”
Lefkofsky notes that “If you were to go into any of the cancer treatment centers and ask who took Herceptin over two years and how they did, they’d need a grant and at least 90 days. That’s the sort of data that should flow freely between researchers, clinicians, and others.” And that’s precisely where Tempus steps in to solve problems. Mr. Lefkofsky is an incredibly generous and charitable man. In 2006, he and his wife formed a charitable trust that donates funding to educational and scientific causes helping save lives.
