Clay B. Siegall provided answer to the first question in the same interview. He narrated how he had to endure serious emotional pain having to watch his father contend with cancer for five years before giving up the ghost. He was 24 years old when his father die.

It is no coincidence that the company he co-founded was given the name Seattle Genetics. From all indications, he is out to pay cancer in its own coin. The realization of his dream will definitely liberate people living at the mercy of the monster called cancer.
Before setting up Seattle Genetics, Clay B.
