Canary Foundation - helping kids with medulloblastoma

Posted on Mon, March 3, 2008 at 09:35PM by Registered CommenterNeil Hutchison | Comments22 Comments | References7 References

 The Canary Foundation (www.canaryfoundation.org) has a wonderful model —- create simple blood tests that identify cancers at their earliest, most curable stages.  And they are going after some tough cancers  - prostate, ovarian, lung, and pancreatic.

The parents of MagicWater always joke that we don’t care who cures pediatric cancers, we just want kids to live.  With that in mind, we would like to bring attention to Canary Foundation for their commitment to tackle a pediatric cancer - medulloblastoma.  We think it is wonderful.

As you know, MagicWater also has research projects focusing on medulloblastoma and our hope, while we juggle kids in treatment, fulltime jobs, and fundraising, is to work with the Canary Foundation and expand their pediatric cancer programs. 

And we know of another cancer where kids could benefit from earlier detection at initial diagnosis and at relapse  —  neuroblastoma.  So please learn about the wonderful work done by the Canary Foundation and spread the word about MagicWater. 

If you don’t care who gets credit, maybe just maybe, we can save some kids.

From their website:

The founder, Don Listwin, has donated $1,000,000 to The Center for Children’s Brain Tumors at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford.  Scientists at the Center will use the funds to help unlock the molecular origins of medulloblastoma, the most common primary central nervous system tumor that arises in childhood. The gift will provide immediate funding for research that will bring together experienced physicians and scientists who will investigate fundamental mechanisms of medullablastoma; improve imaging methods to detect and analyze the tumors; and explore potential therapies. Medulloblastoma most often strikes children under age 10, and has a survival rate of 60 to 80 percent.

<p>One of the best things about these Thomas Wylde Handbags is that many are on clearance because they are last season’s collection. However, fashionistas need not worry about this because Thomas Wylde Handbags has always been fashion-forward enough to carry over seasons. Plus many of trends we saw in spring are still hot for fall. So buying a Coach handbag that’s on-trend now but was from last season simply means you’re a smart shopper.

Check out these other brand name handbags for fall that made our must-have list and snag any of them at eBags.com for a great price.

<p>Meanwhile the `Mongolia' was pushing timberland boots forward rapidly; on the 13th, Mocha, surrounded by its ruined walls whereon date-trees were growing, was sighted, and on the mountains beyond were espied vast coffee-fields. Passepartout was ravished timberland mens boots to behold this celebrated place, and thought that, with its circular walls and dismantled fort, it looked like an immense coffee cup and saucer. The following night they passed through the Strait timberland boat shoes mens of Bab-el-Mandeb, which means in arabic `The Bridge of Tears', and the next day they put in at Steamer Point, north-west of aden harbour, to take in coal.

The visa procured, Mr Fogg returned on board to resume his former habits; while Passepartout, according black timberland 6 inch to custom, sauntered about among the mixed population of Somalis, Banyans, Parsees, Jews, arabs and Europeans who comprise the twenty-five thousand inhabitants of aden. He gazed with wonder upon the fortifications timberland eyes boat which make this place the Gibraltar of the Indian Ocean, and the vast cisterns where the English engineers were still at work, two thousand years after the engineers of Solomon.Very curious, very custom timberlands curious,' said Passepartout to himself, on returning to the steamer. `I see that it is by no means useless to travel, if a man wants to see something new.' at six p.m. the `Mongolia' slowly moved timberland 6 inch white out of the roadstead, and was soon once more on the Indian Ocean. She had a hundred and sixty-eight hours in which to reach Bombay, and the sea was favourable, the wind being in the north-west, and all sails aiding the engine. The steamer timberland boots uk rolled but little, the ladies, in fresh toilets, reappeared on deck, and the singing and dancing were resumed. The trip was being accomplished most successfully, and Passepartout was enchanted with the congenial custom made timberland companion which chance had secured him in the person of the delightful Fix. On Sunday, October 20th, towards noon, they came in sight of the Indian coast: two hour later pilot came on board. a range of hills cheap timberland 6 inch boots lay against the sky in the horizon, and soon the rows of palms which adorn Bombay came distinctly into view. The steamer entered the road formed by the islands in the bay, and at half-past four she classic boat timberland hauled up at the quays of Bombay.Phileas Fogg was timberland custom homes in the act of finishing the thirty-third rubber of the voyage, and his partner and himself having, by a bold stroke, captured all thirteen of the tricks, concluded this fine campaign with a brilliant victory.

With the sudden collapse of our support, these atrocities at Huewould become the nightmare of the entire nation and particularly nike mercurial white for the million-and-a half Catholic refugees who fled toSouth Vietnamwhen the Communists took over in the North.

In my opinion, for us to withdraw from that effort would mean adidas adizero f50 not only of South Vietnambut Southeast Asia. So we’re going to stay there. LFQ

<p>The longer UGG bailey button it takes you to recover, the more influence that incident has on your actions, and the less able you are to perform to your personal best. In a nutshell, the longer it takes you to UGG classic cardy 5819 boots clearance recover, the weaker you are and the poorer your performance.When I first read this line by England's Poet Laureate, it startled me. What did Masefield mean? Without thinking about it UGG cardy Boots brown much.
