Dear Chuck's sister,

My thoughts are with you and all of your family at this time right now. As Marion has said to you, Chuck meant so very much to everyone here on the site and touched so many people around the world as well. He will be so very very sorely missed by so many people and please know that we are all here for you and all of your family as well.

Thanks so much for posting this Marion.

So very sorry to hear this news of Duke's passing, horrible. Even though we expected it and knew this was coming it is a horrible day just as it is when we lose anyone from our family.

To Aimee and Duke's family, please know that my thoughts are with you all right now and please accept my sincere condolences. Duke was a true gent, a gem and he will be sorely missed by so many, many people. So keen to help others in their fight as well and at the same time share a joke with us all and bring a smile to many faces worldwide. He will be sorely missed and never forgotten.

And yes Marion, we so will carry out Duke's wishes with his so very generous donation to the Foundation by purchasing and publishing the articles that we cannot currently do so that will be of great help to so many people here.

My thoughts are with Aimee and Duke's family right now.

Much love and Hugs to all,


Excellent news Greg, thanks loads for sharing that with us all! Keeping fingers crossed for more success for you as well!

Hi John,

Good to hear from you again and thanks loads for your update. If the contrast has freed up your trapped nerve then that is good, trapped nerves can be very sore can't they and lets hope that there is no more pain from that as you have enough on your plate right now to deal with,

Am keeping my fingers crossed for you for some good news from your scans and the MDT meeting on Monday and please let us all know how that goes for you and what they say etc. Please try not to focus on the CA 19-9 levels too much right now.

Loads of positive thoughts are coming your way John and please know that we are all here for you and rooting for you as well.

My best wishes to you,


Wow!! Thanks for letting us know about that Marion, superb news indeed!!  And exciting as you say! Can't wait to see what the official list will show later in the year, not that far away now is it!

Thanks and hugs to everyone!


More great news tonight, thanks for that Ali!! Hoping like you say that things do get quieter and no doubt you are so looking forward to visiting too!

Hi Carol,

Please feel free to rant away here as much as you want to as we so know what you are going through right now and how you feel as well. Please trust me though when I say to you that it does get easier but it does take time. It took me ages to get my head around the fact that my dad was gone as well and you never forget but it does get easier with time. As Lainy says, the good memories will come back and hopefully they will help ease the pain that you feel.

Big hug for you,


Hi Kathy,

Virtual Hill Day: Urge Congress to work together to fund the NIH and NCI.

Support Federal Funding for Cancer Research!

Today, nearly 300 advocates are on Capitol Hill for the Rally for Medical Research Hill Day. As a proud supporter of this initiative, ASCO is calling on Congress to work together to fund research at the NIH and NCI. Make your voice heard and join us virtually-- send a message to your lawmaker today!


ASCO is joining with the biomedical research community this Fall to push Congress to provide robust funding for the NIH and NCI in fiscal year 2016 before the current budget expires at the end of this month.


Both the House and Senate passed Labor, Health, and Human Services Appropriations bills out of Committee, but right now Congress is unlikely to move on either.
The most likely path forward is a continuing resolution (CR) that will fund the NIH and NCI at current levels.
This is unacceptable and only exacerbates the problem of nearly a decade of stagnant funding.
