My web site is devoted to medical and treatment information about this rare cancer. My blog is devoted to sharing what has been the more difficult part of the journey for me, the emotional and spiritual road I've traveled as a rare cancer survivor.

AACR Annual Meeting

.I am in Denver now ready for the beginning of the AACR's Centennial Annual Meeting tomorrow. There will be 17,000 people participating in the conference from 60 different countries with over 500 significant new discoveries in cancer research being presentedI am tonight trying to decide which of those 500 presentations I most want to attend, I wish I could attend them all. I again have multiple presentations, at least 2 or 3, I'd like to attend for most of my available time slots over the 5 days. I will again have to pick and choose as I am unfortunately unable to be in several places at once. It is such an overwhelming opportunity for me to learn so much. I am very grateful to be here.

I flew into Denver just before the snow storm started...it was pouring rain when I got here and about half an hour later the rain changed to sleet and then heavy snow. I was able to get a few pictures, one of the snow covered Big Blue Bear sculpture that peeks into the Conference Center windows. It is 40 feet tall and weighs 10,000 lbs. You can see the snow storm as it was in progress. I'm very fortunate my flight came in when it did...an hour later and I'm sure I'd have experienced flight delays. I will try to update my blog over the next several days while I am here in Colorado.
