I saw you on the KCA website and am really enjoying your blogs!!!! Thanks so much for taking the time to write them:)

Wow! Your definition David of just how Warriors are blazing that trail for cancer cure is so true. This is World War III and each of you are the bravest and most courageous men and women who would have fought in any of the previous wars. Cancer affects everyone around the world and shows no mercy on political stripe or nationality. Just think of what each of you are doing for future you said David, you are contributing to the demise of cancer. The final victory of this War is very close, as I believe a cure is very near. If we just look back to one year ago, there was not much available for RCC patients, and now it seems new drugs are always appearing on the horizon. Those of you who endure the harsh side effects and battle scars are the heros of tomorrow. Hold your heads very high, continue marching gallently even though some days you may step out of pace just a little, for your medals of bravery await each and everyone of you. I applaud you for your amazing strength!

A Comment from the North
"I ain't going to study war no more!" DF we share your dream. For what we all want is...peace. Isn't that why we fight the fight. Because in the end we just want it to be like it use to be. So while I proudly say in younger years, I evaded (high lottery number) Nixon's army, today I stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of David Foster. Putting our geographic heritage aside, we are ready for Pickett's Charge, defense of the Siegfried Line or the Tet Offensive. I am proud to share a foxhole with you.

What a sweet dream it is. The day that happens will be a date for the history books to be sure.
