Dream the Impossible Dream. Live above Mediocracy. Set you thoughts on things above. Sore with wings like eagles high above all. Nothing is impossible with God. We can do all things through Christ who strenghtens us.

Pathways to Peace "When Mother Teresa received her Nobel Prize, she was asked the question, "What can we do to promote world peace?" She replied "Go home and love your family.""

Our mission at Memory Cross is to help kids and adults engrave God's Word in their heart. Colossians 3:16 says "Let the words of Christ, in all their richness, live in your hearts and make you wise." (NLT) At Memory Cross we do that by incorporating a fun interactive card that kids can't put down with God's Word.

DNA-Based Vaccine Triples Survival for Dogs With Melanoma; Immune Boosting Vaccine Also Being Studi (4/9/2003 10:00:00 AM) "The options for treating advanced melanoma are limited - regardless of whether the patient is a dog or a human. Because this deadly cancer is virtually resistant to chemotherapy and radiation in its late stages, new approaches are being investigated including vaccines that harness the immune system. For nine dogs that naturally developed canine malignant melanoma, treatment with a new DNA-based vaccine more than tripled their median survival from an expected 90 days to an average of 389 days."

Prevalence of Adenomas among Young Individuals at Average Risk for Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the prevalence and characteristics of adenomas in a young population not genetically predisposed for the development of colorectal cancer (CRC).

METHODS: The databases of the Dutch Hereditary Colorectal Cancer Registry were used. The study population included patients (n = 444) who had regular endoscopy until mutation analysis revealed they did not carry the (Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC)/Mismatch Repair) gene defect identified in their family.

RESULTS: At first colonoscopy (n = 342; 50% males, mean age 37 yr) a total of 19 adenomas (10 males, mean age 50 yr, range 2491 yr) and two CRCs (2 males, age 49 and 72 yr) were identified, and at first sigmoidoscopy (n = 102; 53% males, mean age 29 yr) three adenomas (2 males, age 8, 40, and 41 yr) were found. A second colonoscopy was performed in 14 patients with, and in 162 patients without an adenoma. Three of 14 patients (21%) developed a new adenoma (all >50 yr) and 8 of 162 (5%) patients developed their first adenoma during follow-up. In the colonoscopy group, the cumulative proportion of patients free of adenomas at age 50 yr was 86%. Of all adenomas diagnosed during colonoscopy (n = 49), 65% were located distal from the flexura lienalis. Of the adenomas detected during all endoscopies (n = 53), 9.8% were 7 mm, 7.5% showed high-grade dysplasia, and 7.5% showed tubulovillous features.

CONCLUSIONS: On the basis of our findings during colonoscopy we conclude that the risk of developing adenomas/CRC in young individuals without genetic risk factors is low. Adenoma surveillance programs should focus on young individuals with a positive family (or personal) history for adenomas/CRC, or on individuals >50 yr.

Starting October 1997, free annual credit reports for victims of identity theft, indigent persons and unemployed persons are required by federal law. Six states (CO, GA, MA, MD, NJ, and VT) provide a free credit report annually on request to anyone, from each of the Big 3 bureaus.

"As a general matter, you should avoid giving out personal information on the phone, through the mail or over the Internet unless you know the business or person with whom you are dealing. Identity thieves have been known to pose as representatives of banks, Internet service providers and even governmental agencies in order to gather personal information such as your Social Security number and bank information."
