Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma on Facebook

I should have known that folks with ACC (or people caring about others that have ACC) would be on Facebook. I ran a search for adenoid cystic, and found two groups:
I Support "Wild Bill" Allen's Fight Against Cancer
and
Help Fight A.C.C. (Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma)
I don't currently have a My Space, or Second Life account - if someone does, let me know if they have ACC groups on those sites as well. Just maybe, we can all get together virtually someday. The discussion groups and forums on the right side of this blog do a great job in linking people together - give them a try, if you are searching for fellow ACC fighters. You can also post here, and we can gather our own group together right here on this blog. Whatever the result, if you or someone you love is fighting this rare cancer, please know you are not alone!

Stanley Whitaker, a rock guitarist, has ACC and chronic low-level leukemia. Here's to him feeling better fast and returning to play the music the world loves to hear. His personal web site, http://208.77.102.202/sal/HomeCtrl.jsp, mentions an upcoming benefit concert on November 9th. His Caring Bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/stanleywhitaker.
