Major fund-raising program on finding an end to cancer on all three major television networks tonight. The program will also feature some of the latest research.  It is on at 7 p.m. in my time zone. Check your local listings. Lauri

It was very very moving.  I wonder if Meryl Streep wrote what she said.  I was very moved.  Pat Swayze, Fran Drescher, and the closing with Melissa Etheridge's song.  James taylor and Cheryl Crow singing "Fire and rain" (a sentimental favorite and so poinient)  I hope it generated that one pivotal dollar that erradicates this dreadful disease.  It was full of hope and tears and I called many that I know to watch it. 
It was a real shot in that it was only an hour long, so it was very very powerful.  Can they repeat it?
