It's me noggin, not me peepers

Just back from the opthamologist (dr. DA, who is awesome, not that it will do any of you any good since I'm only listing initials -- if you live in Southern California and need a good opthamologist, email me!). I have no cataracts or anything physiologicallyl wrong with my eyes. My vision is still 20/20 -- which means it was probably BETTER than 20/20 before treatment since I have definitely lost some crispness.

My eyes are dilated so I can't really see what I am typing...thus I'll make this a short note.

I do want to mention that in my appreciation for Kathy Giusti and the MMRF, I don't want to discount the many, many people who have assisted in fundraising on the grassroots level. My point yesterday was that this t type of fundraising was not what they have in mind when considering a person for their board -- at that point it is about (very) large donations.

In any case, a great many people are contributing towards advancing treatment for this disease and as a patient, I am appreciative of everybody's efforts!

  1. So glad to read about your eyes and that all is good.
    As to fund raising: Absolutely every single bit counts, no matter how small. If we all do a little bit for this small 1% cancer whose profile needs a great big fat boost, all will help. So very much under funded here in the UK. Have just completed a fund raising exercise in our tiny village of 210 Population here in the Lincolnshire Wolds UK. Re- printed an old book of mine and have now got a very nice cheque to send to Myeloma UK, It's not much in the grand scale of things but everything helps. I am so glad to read you are doing so well.
