Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in the news

Another set of ACC heros, Marnie and Jeff Kaufman of Massachusetts, were in the news yesterday:

Couple raises $3M to fight rare cancer: effort a "race against time"

The Kaufmans set up the Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation [ACCRF], after Marnie was diagnosed with ACC and went through treatment in 2004. Since that time, the effort to research this rare cancer has increased, offering hope to me and the rest of us wearing the disease.

So if you are sitting around, thinking that an individual can't make a difference in this ol' world, take a look at the Kaufmans and the Almanzas (from the June 25th post)- great things are accomplished through determined individuals pushing against great obstacles.
