    The latest Obama project, handed to Joe Biden (whose son died of brain cancer) is a 'moonshot' to cure cancer. He losers, patients with a disease like ours. Llewellyn King makes a case for us in this article.

    Take a read, and share widely. The moonshot for cancer is currently discussed a lot in the media.

    Another opportunity for us.

    This is a good paragraph:

    "While we’ve been the world’s powerhouse in research in all sciences, biomedical is now being starved of research dollars. Recently America’s most revered virus hunter, Dr. Ian Lipkin, director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, has had to resort to crowdfunding. He and his deputy, Dr. Mady Hornig, can be found on YouTube eating red-hot chili peppers in an attempt to raise money for their ME/CFS research."
