Trying to not hijack the thread. But, I've read that diabetes kills more people than cancer does? How much do you hear about it though? I've always been a little skeptical about "foundations" or "organizations" that collect money. Maybe they have raised awareness for more women to get screened and checked out and saved lives by doing so. Some work real hard at collecting money and marketing efforts.

How much of the money goes to the marketing effort vs. real research?

Could a cure be lost just because of lack of communication? Think about all the data and research collected for so many years, but spread out across the world, computers, companies, etc...and not openly shared by all.

My Prayers for Mark.

A few weeks back the woman that ran our Print Shop, Sandy Moldafsky, was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor. It turned out to be Malignant. She started Chemo.
This morning when I logged into the Corp. web site, there was a notice that she had passed away over the weekend.

What Cancer Cannot Do --Cancer is SO limited. It CANNOT Cripple Love It CANNOT

shatter hope It CANNOT Corrode Faith It CANNOT Eat Away Peace It CANNOT Destroy

Confidence It CANNOT Kill Friendship It CANNOT Shut Out Memories It CANNOT Silence

Courage It CANNOT Invade the Soul It CANNOT Reduce Eternal Life It CANNOT Quench the Spirit

-unknown


Take your rest in Glory, Mark. We'll miss you, Brother.

I've been told that Mark is headed to hospice.

Mark, give 'em hell when you get to the other side.

Never knew the man, but my heart goes out to anyone who perishes from that illness. Not the way I want to leave this world.

I kept hoping for better news about his condition - at this point I can only pray for a peaceful passing. He will be deeply missed by many.
