Re: Great news for us: grant to create CC tissue bank

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.

Re: Great news for us: grant to create CC tissue bank

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
