I'm very, very familiar with cancer and current drug targeting therapies.
The stuff she was pointing at was already well published in scientific journals from the past several years.
There is unlikely to EVER be a cure for all cancer, simply because there are many different types of cancers -- many different causes for the DNA transcription to go haywire, many different ways to target due to different types of "weird" receptors being expressed on the cancer cells, and to further complicate things, the fact that cancers can morph into different types (e.g. original tumor expresses receptor A, morphs, some of the new tumor cells now express different receptors, thus rendering past targeted drugs useless as the same receptor isn't on the new cancer cells).
blah blah

Quoted so people may actually read and stop posting about how they can't believe it wasn't thought about before.

This was envisioned before she was born.

So if this was envisioned before she was born why is this a big deal now?
Or is it just a big deal because she's a highschool student?

Or is it that she actually put the theory to practice?

It's not a big deal at all -- just that mainstream media chose to publish it. If it truly was insanely ground breaking, it would be published in a real scientific journal and the work would be a collaboration between many researchers and often many labs around the globe.

This is simply another example of mass market media garbage -- they pick what they want to publicize and fail to present the background.
