American Association for Cancer Research AACR Scientist-Survivor Program Rally for Medical Research

Well, it's about time that I posted some fun videos produced from photos I took at the AACR Scientist Survivor Program in Washington DC.  The first video presents some great photos of AACR-SSP members doing some gentle Congressional arm twisting at the Rally for Medical Research. I'll post the second soon.  No matter which side of the aisle you may lean politically, there is no meaningful opposition for increased funding for Medical Research. 

Now more than ever Congress has to hear our voices loudly and clearly about this common sense legislation.  It is fiscally responsible as this kind of research has repeatedly generated a great return on investment.  New technology can dramatically reduce the cost of healthcare. Perhaps the most meaningful benefit coming from this investment is the move away from empirical therapy (keep trying therapy until you find what works) to genomics-based therapy (undergo genetics assessment before treatment), the promise of Personalized Medicine.   It's no secret that healthcare spending is out of control and can't be sustained at this level.   Smart investments in Medical Research is the best way to attack this problem now. 

A good friend once reminded me, nothing happens to anyone until it happens to you.  Cancer patients that have taken up the cause of Research Advocacy well understand the urgent and compassionate need to increase funding here.

Honestly, I am at a complete loss for words to drebsice what I, as a parent am thinking at this moment having read this Fr Tim!!!Where do these Independent Advisory Groups and people come from?? Who conjurs them up??? Do any of them come from 'normal' families or have children of their own??? Do they have paedophile criminal records or are they just 'coming out' about their own perverted and stunted sexuality???Ye gods - what next. Condoms in sweetie packets???By handing out condoms to children in swimming pools, shopping centres, schools etc... these idiots are condoning, in fact ENCOURAGING, the sexualisation of children, it appears as young as 5. This is clearly sexual abuse.I say lock up the lot of them and throw the keys away. As for whoever funds these nutty 'quangos' they should be investigated by the police for their dubious and illegal agendas.By all means teach children who are in higher education (6th form) the TRUTH about abortion, that it kills babies in their mother's wombs etc... Ha, funny isn't it, they won't touch that one with a barge pole, but they will LIE to children by teaching about the benefits(???) of abortion.Can anyone out there PLEASE tell me - WHAT BENEFITS!!!!!!!
