Topic: PHOENIX ONC SURGEON CONV
Here is a report of our first day working the CC Foundation Booth. The anticipation we had of meeting Marion did not fall short of the actual meeting. She is as lovely inside as she is outside and this lady is on a MISSION, a mission to see that no one else succumbs to this monster. We definitely have an advocate warrior fighting for us all. I cannot begin to tell you the feelings of meeting someone from our CC family.
The feeling is so strong that I began to think how wonderful it would be for us to all meet one another.
I will report on the general feelings and will leave the scientific stuff to Marion because she is the pro. Believe me, she kept right up with what ever a doctor was talking about, I was just her side kick.
We also met David Windle a wonderful gentleman from Rio Rancho, NM.
Early on, we gave Teddy the job of "reeling" in the doctors so that Marion could do her interviews. Teddy did a great job, as Marion stated several times that they never had so many doctors give business cards and stop and chat like they did today.
We believe we hit the jackpot with some who want to get involved with our Family. This is big, real big. Again I will let Marion explain the medical parts.
This is a huge convention with doctors from all over the world.
One interesting side note is that a few did state that they believed liver flukes in Asia may have played a part in Viet Nam and Korea. It was conversation but really makes you think even more about that aspect of CC.
On to a shower and bed and to get ready for tomorrow when I hope we have the same success as today.
