Great news indeed Marion!!
It is a start, Gavin. And, it feels good.
Marion, this is DYNOMITE!!!!!!!!!! I will rephrase the Etta James song, "At Last". At last, our cure has come along. Let's put our CC where it belongs..............
It sure does feel good! Great things can come from small acorns.
Gavin...the poet is awakening in you. You are full of surprises. Love it.
This is great news indeed!
I wonder if the new bank will collect samples only from Massachusetts General patients. I hope they will cooperate with other hospitals, so the bank can grow as fast as possible.
I will be in contact with Mass. Gen. in re: to the particulars, but discussions have been ongoing regarding the tissue sampling, the handling, and the storing of such tissue. Hugs and love,Marion
I just sent this link to both my Oncologist and Surgeon, especially because I have a resection scheduled for March 1. Maybe I can be a contributor, who knows, I can help others in the future.
Thanks for the info Marions.
Praying for us all, Grover
Hey, Grover, you are one of our Heroes and we will take any piece of you we can get....be it a post, in person meet up, or like you say you may be the one to help all the rest!
Grover...let me know what you find out. I am still trying to reach Dr. Nabeel Bardeesy, Harward. Of course I will share all info. Hugs and love,Marion
