Hello. My name is James Timothy Ward. On a summer day in 1993, my father, who, normally, worked long hours at his office, came home early with the news of a lifetime. He had tickets to a major sporting event and we were leaving right away.

Anxious fans lined up outside the stadium in herds. Dad and I were proudly sported our team’s jerseys and were branded with facepaint bearing our team logos. Once inside we completed our look with none other than the infamous foam hands that we purchased at concessions. With every score our team made, I wildly waved my foam hand asserting what I already knew...that we were truly “number one.”

    Standing there on the street, I stood staring up to a hundred giant football players walking by me. As I held the rope that the football players walked through, I stretched out my hand to try and high five as many of them as I could. One… two…three…twenty-seven…twenty-eight…twenty-nine! Each one of them pranced by while the drum line marched them on to the beat of the fight song. Standing there looking up at the enormous football players, I avidly wondered what it would be like to walk through this crowd to go play at Highlander Stadium.…

    It was a warm Tampa Bay evening on February 1st, 2009. Most people would recall it as any ordinary day, but it was the game of the year for football fans – super bowl XLII.

The traditional approaches lead to disparities regarding the rich and the poor, since patients who have inefficient funds are unable to pay for their treatments, whereas some people are able to pay for the additional cost. With the input of 3D printing technology, the “personalized medicine” is affordable to users and the once disputing…
