Indian student named a finalist in 'Doodle 4 Google' contestJoe White Horse, an Indian student from Farmington High School in New Mexico, is a regional finalist in the Doodle 4 Google contest.

"I look at cancer as an unstoppable black mass," White Horse told The Farmington Daily Times. "When cancer takes over, it takes the hearts of everyone around that person. If I could do anything, I would cure cancer."
