Hey,
I got an E-mail from the LRF yesterday as I am sure a lot of you did. It says there is a person diagnosed with blood cancer every 4 mins.You notice I said DIAGNOSED. How about the ones that are not diagnosed and never will be? Do the math here.Thats 131,400 people a year. And the numbers are rising.They are not including all the other types of cancers out there from head to toe.If those stats are correct then its no longer IF,but WHEN people GET CANCER.When I go to the cancer center anymore its like they are having a 2 for 1 sale at the mall. NO BULL !!! What in the HELL is going on here folks? John(FNHL-1-4A-5/10)

Hi John,

Is that in the United States or worldwide?
I don't know if you can paste the contents of the email or
email to me or provide a link. I'm curious.

Thanks,

Jim

Vinny,
Its the same here with knowing so many people with cancer. The thing about it is none of them have Lymphoma. Its the other cancers,lung,breast,bladder,etc....
