Yesterday, I sent out an email to friends and acquantances regarding this. This publication has a very small online audience, but it cannot hurt to post this request for attention and help here. It is a for a good cause.

I spoke a an oncologist I know yesterday. In our conversation she mentioned a patient of hers who is afflicted with a similar illness, and whose prognosis is not so great right now. Nevertheless, she and her family are organizing a bike tour to help raise money and awareness of the desease -- Ewing's Sarcoma (PNET). It is unlikely that many of you will be able to join them in Denmark for the tour, but you can help support the effort, or participate in a "virtual" bike tour with them -- riding your bikes on the same days as they will in Denmark. Details
are here -- Shriner's Danish Bike Tour and their Virtual Bike Tour. Feel free to forward this on to whoever you think might be interested.

I make no representation that forwarding this on, or donating money, will put you on some sort of a "Golden Path", help you find a "golden nuggest", or cure the pain in the "golden tooth". I would however be happy if you took the time to read the information contained in the links. Surely, ten minutes spent reading through and considering ways in which you can help will not count as waste.
