Sad news about Geraldine Ferraro...

A sober reminder of how horrible this disease is.  She was quite a fighter -- living with this for 12 years.  She outlasted the odds available to her at that time.  But it's also a sobering reminder of how one can only control this disease for so long.

Here's hoping that in celebrating her life and honoring her passing with dignity, some attention can be focused on this disease and new treatments developed, hopefully leading to a cure that's a bit less intensive than the one hopefully offered through tandem transplants.

For now, I remain humbled by my good fortune in finding a doctor and a protocol in whom and in which I believe, respectively.  And I remain thankful for you good people, and for the favorable impact my therapy has had on me thus far.
