complete bee ess. Cancer has never been so rampant. Why? How about because we are poisoned by industry. Our food and water are full of chemicals. Our governments are pro-business so they are not pro-consumer. We are vaccinating children and crippling their genetics and their immune systems so they can't work properly. They have infected the human race with at least one cancer causing retro monkey virus SV40 and possiblt HIV too through vaccines. No cancer should be prevented not treated, but the world is run by chemical and medical companies who can make large "campaign contributions". So government protects them from us. The Mafia used to call it protection money.

Waldenstroms Macroglobulinemia is such a rare cancer that it gets no Federal Gov't funding, an orphan cancer. Yet finding the key to a cure this cancer could affect so many others with Lymphomas and Multiple Myeloma. Patients, caregivers and medical professionals have formed thier own bootstrapped, fund raising and research and educational organization.

Please look at http://www.iwmf.com/ and consider making a worthwhile donation.

We are making incredible progress having provided funding for many research projects including the most recent successful genome research described in this article. We are hopeful, positive and pro-active in finding a cure for this rare cancer.
