Dear Lee and Buddy,
My sincere and heart felt appreciation to both of you and the all you have done hear. Cancer did not create this site, Hope, Love and the thoughtfull consideration of others did.
Without the thought fll commitment of strong leaders like yourselves most of us others would become lost in the wilderness of fear and suffering. Your guidance has shown so many the path of knowledge, strength and ability to cope.
I wish you God's Speed.
