Hacker diagnosed with brain cancer, hacks the closed source report distributing it to the open source community hoping to get some help

This is a some­what aston­ish­ing news, and once again the demon­stra­tion that alter­na­tive think­ing might be the way to solve appar­ently unsolv­able cases.
I just report what was writ­ten by the hacker him­self on his web­site.
Can any­one help?

Rome, Sep­tem­ber 10th 2012

I have a brain can­cer.

Yes­ter­day I went to get my dig­i­tal med­ical records: I have to show them to many doc­tors.

Sadly they were in a closed, pro­pri­etary for­mat and, thus, I could not open them using my com­puter, or send them in this for­mat to all the peo­ple who could have saved my life.

I cracked them.

I opened them and con­verted the con­tents into open for­mats, so that I could share them with every­one.

Just today I have been able to share the data about my health con­di­tion (about my brain can­cer) with 3 doc­tors.

2 of them already replied.

I have been able to do it because the data used open, acces­si­ble for­mats: they have been able to open the files using their com­put­ers, their tablets. They have been able to reply from home, on sun­day.

I will pro­gres­sively pub­lish all the replies I will receive, using open for­mats, so that any­one with my same dis­ease will be able to ben­e­fit from the solu­tions I will find.

This is a CURE. This is my OPEN SOURCE CURE.

This is an open invi­ta­tion to take part in the CURE.

CURE, in dif­fer­ent cul­tures, means dif­fer­ent things.

There are cures for the body, for spirit, for com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

Grab the infor­ma­tion about my dis­ease, if you want, and give me a CURE: cre­ate a video, an art­work, a map, a text, a poem, a game, or try to find a solu­tion for my health prob­lem.

Artists, design­ers, hack­ers, sci­en­tists, doc­tors, pho­tog­ra­phers, video­mak­ers, musi­cians, writ­ers. Any­one can give me a CURE.

Cre­ate your CURE using the con­tent which you find in the DATI/​DATA sec­tion here on this site, and send it to info@​artisopensource.​net.

ZONE​-​H​.ORG: IF IT MIGHT HAP­PEN THAT YOU KNOW ANY DOC­TOR WILL­ING TO CON­SIDER THE CASE, PLEASE CON­SIDER TO SUB­MIT THIS CASE TO HIM .

THANKS A LOT, Roberto “SyS64738” Preatoni

…let’s keep our fin­gers crossed
