In this week’s blog I want to put my focus on something everyone probably heard and thought about: Cryogenic sleeping or less scientificly said: Freezing someone for X-amount of time, only to wake up in another new society, years from now with hopefully new medical breakthroughs and treatments.
(Fair and square, the credits for this week’s topic won’t go to me but to one of my readers which gave me the idea (you know who you are 😉 ).
While searching google and some more scientifc related websites I came across the story of Kim Suozzi, a 23 year-old student with a highly aggresive form of terminal brain cancer. She made a post about it on Reddit and comments followed quickly, supporting her every needs for the time remaining. One of the comments though, got her interested in cryogenic preservation. With nothing to lose and the financial help from reddit, she got the costs she needed to cover the expenses and let herself be incased by ice after she clinically passed away.

All in all, would you even consider this, if finances wouldn’t be an issue? Will science be able to “revive” these patients and cure them from their diseases in the future or do you think this plan is foolish and wasted money and research?
If you have an opinion about this, feel free to comment below!
See you next week!
