“the real test of friendship is
can you literally do nothing with the other person?
can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?”
very proud of my brother, scott today.
Solving Kids’ Cancer
Today, Scott Kennedy, Executive Director, Solving Kids’ Cancer, and Joe McDonough, Founder and President, The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, presented a check to Duke University Medical Center to bring oncolytic virus therapy to children battling high-grade brain tumors. The adult trial, leveraging the re-engineered polio virus, has shown very promising results and this new pediatric trial gives tangible #hope to children who are desperately seeking new treatment options.
You can make a difference to children with cancer. Your donations directly fund innovative new treatments for children battling cancer today.

on this day of the first debate
by the candidates for the u.s. presidency
back to the past
ahead to the future
hope for the truth
“a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood
in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.”

one day gerald mysteriously appeared
with a note and a friendly greeting
left by an unknown visitor
he moved into
the fairy community at my cottage
i know they welcomed him
with open arms and open doors.
“happiness often sneaks in
through a door you didn’t know you left open.”
