"It is not often in this day and age that one can be part of something that can really make a difference in people's lives. We all have jobs and try to get through life as best we can but rarely can we influence something as important as finding a cure for diseases. I have found it tremendously rewarding to be part of an organization so involved in that process. I am positive the time and effort we put into this is very well spent, and I am looking forward to continuing the effort."
