[MOL] Marty... the cancer kickoff/park forward...

This is the forward that I said I would send...  I heard that NCI is going
to put 3 million dollars into the research of endostatin/angiostatin.  I
respect Mr. Bloch giving so selflessly to the cancer march and praise God
that he is... I just struggle a little when I total 30 million dollars in
parks verses 3 million to research, but I am not the one who has the
answers....  Carla

>along the way to bring The March to their attention.  Anyone wishing to
>join her or find out if she will come thru your town can contact March HQ
>in DC or send me a message and we'll get you in touch with her. After a box
>lunch, there was a dedication ceremony for the Bloch Cancer Survivorship
>Park.  Mr Bloch has generously donated $1.5 million for development and
>maintenance of the park.  He is establishing 20 of these throughout the US.
> I was pleased to be a park of the program.  I offer my congratulations to
