Re: Update is not good news
Cancer - The equal opportunity disease. I could talk for hours on the subject.

My personal opinion is that this kind of cancer (non-Hodgkins lymphoma) is one that could benefit from stem cell research, as one of the best options is to kill your entire immune system (it's the white blood cells that are cancerous and multiply uncontrolled throughout your body, rather than a tumor in a specific location) and then replace it with a new one. With stem cells that then identify themselves with my body I don't have to worry about rejection where a transplanted immune system would reject my body (the ultimate pink slip).
I agree that stem cell research should be done to help rid humanity of such diseases.
enough rambling, all I can say is good luck. I hope you come through it with "Flying Colors."
