Given exclusive access to Frazer, biographer and journalist Madonna King tells of his ongoing struggle for funding cancer research, the herculean international legal battle waged to win the patent, the devastating loss of his friend and co researcher, Dr. Jian Zhou, and Frazer’s ongoing commitment to have the vaccine made available in the developing world.
