My family's thoughts and prayers! :( Cancer has taken to many loved ones from so many people.

I can't name one person that hasn't had some form of Cancer in their family.

I'm really sad to hear about this news Brain! :(

Cancer and other diseases are the main reason I decided to start folding 9 months ago.

My closest (very close) uncle died of a stupid cancer in may 2012 and it pisses me off even after almost 2 years.

I live my life with a pre-born disease that destroyed my ability to walk and as of today this disease is now almost non-existant because medical research have find a way to detect it during the mother's pregnancy and they can cure the baby BEFORE his birth! AMAZING.

We need to continue helping medical researchers so they can one day irradicate some cancers and disease from the face of the earth.

Some people call me "crazy" to invest a lot of my money in my folding rigs but I ignore them because I like to imagine that the tiny tiny part that I do can save some people someday.

Sorry Ross about those news. I know the feeling first-hand. Cancer hit Home-base a couple years ago, fortunately the treatment was well-received.
