Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in the news

My deepest condolences to the family of 30 year-young Julie O'Rourke, who died on Friday after fighting this awful disease for 3 years: http://yourlifemoments.ca/sitepages/obituary.asp?oid=477949 . The family requests that donations be given to the London (ON) Health Sciences Centre Foundation (Head & Neck Oncology) http://www.lhsf.ca/.

Gerald Babao of Charlotte, NC, who was diagnosed with ACC in 2008, talks about training for a sprint triathlon in this article http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2011/03/07/2120295/tri-a-new-workout.html.

And Peter Tork, about the most famous ACC-wearer that I have identified in my hunts for fellow ACC-wearers, is joining up with the remaining members of The Monkees and going on a 45th Anniversary world tour, 2 years after his diagnosis and treatment:  http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/41954791/ns/today-entertainment/.
