Education, Compassion & Inspiration: Dr. Clay Siegall

Posted by eastcoop on

Life can truly be unfair at times and no one is immune to life’s wrath. Everyone knows that they aren’t going to live forever, at least on a physical level. Illness and disease is running rampant in today’s society, and has been doing so for a very long time. It’s a shame that these deadly diseases are taking lives at the same rate as people being are being born. Getting rid of these illnesses should be the main priority, but many capable institutions aren’t into cures. This is the bad side of business and morals have gone out of the window while being replaced with greed. There is no amount of money that is worth a person’s life and Dr. Clay Siegall has been demonstrating this notion for over 30 years.

This is why he is one of the most respected names in cancer research. This man has seen it all, and he has done it all. The amount of studying and sacrificing can’t be put into words. Siegall is from the old school, and he demonstrates old school values. Scientific innovation, drug development and rigorous research goes a long way. Each principle is adhered to at all times and this is why his company, Seattle Genetics, is so successful. Seattle Genetics is one of the top oncology companies in the world, and it has made numerous advancements in fighting cancer. No longer is it a small startup organization, but rather it’s a global cancer-fighting powerhouse. The company’s top drug, ADCETRIS, has generated over $300 million since its inception in 2011.

Forbes has states that Seattle Genetics’ stock has tripled in only a five-year span. Over 70 countries are now receiving these advanced medications thanks to Siegall’s ability to secure licensing deals. Is there anything that this man can’t do? Well, when it comes to fighting cancer, is there anything that he will not do? In the end, that is the real question.
