Re: [MOL] Joseph !

I want you to know how much I appreciate what you send over the MOL forum.  The information is so beneficial.  I have placed everything on disk; to save time in researching; as you know there is so much about cancer.  I hope you don't mind; but I save what you send also and hopefully when the time arises you won't mind if I use it for a query.  I figure we are in this for one reason and that is to help educate all thoes who come to the forum and are on the forum.  Again, thanks friend,  lillian  -
