    Scott, thank-you for this information. It has been inside my head since I read it. I don't have a clue where to start. What I want is outside of current possiblities....make it go away!! Within that, hopefully my thoughts will find a resting place and come up with a good idea. For today, it looks like politics at the hospital level is the agenda. Sharon

      Yes Scott,

      Thanks for posting this. Good article, of course it does barely scratch the surface of a mind-boggling issue. As for sharing stories with Gail for her book... I don't know, I think she'll have to read them from when I write my OWN book!

        You and Danny on a book tour could be dangerous. If that ever happened I think it might be wise to lock all the females away for a while, especially the red heads.
        Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

        Treated by Dr. Rakowski of Midland Park, NJ. Visited Sloan Kettering for protocol advice. RPLND done at Sloan Kettering.

          Not to worry; they would probably employ Laquisha as their bodyguard .
