    The real series low is “Do The Math” a new reality show about a brilliant 15 year old young man, who has been told he won't reach the 5 year timeline for cancer victims as he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and lymphoma [as if having just one is not bad enough]. Jared has designed two games and written a screenplay, wants to move to the US, meet Hans Zimmer, Harvey Weinstein and President Obama before his time runs out and he needs some literal life-saving crowd-funding help—$100,000.00 ought to fulfill his wish list. This is really “real-time” happening as you read this. The kid won't see his 16th birthday in July 2015—which of course means the series will be cancelled. Please help Jared reach his goals.
