The Who stands up to cancer

Postby skypup » Sat Sep 06, 2014 8:30 am

Did y'all see them last night on SU2C? I must have one of those "the Who stands up 2 cancer" t-shirts!

I was really troubled by two things in the broadcast: they made it sound like cures are happening all the time, and there was almost nothing on colon cancer (yet again) when it is the number two killer. Oh, and I was uncomfortable that it seems big pharma is sneaking its tentacles into the SU2C effort. But it is still a great, great effort to get some good research funded!
