Links Updated

We have updated the links in the right margin to highlight four charities we hope people will support. There are posts below on each of them, but they have fallen off the front page and we want them available at all times.

The charities are:

Cedars-Sinai Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fund (Account No. 216620). This is a general fund controlled by the pediatric oncologists here at Cedars. While it may support some research, it is principally used to make life more comfortable for pediatric cancer patients at this hospital. This is a good option if you want to focus on Los Angeles.

Children's Oncology Group (CureSearch). This is the premier research organization devoted to curing forms of cancer that affect children. Ben is participating in a leukemia study sponsored by this group.

Hockey Fights Cancer. Ben and his Daddy play hockey, so we had to include this!

Starlight-Starbright Children's Foundation. This group is devoted to making life more comfortable for children with serious illnesses. The "fun center" they supplied to Cedars really made it easier for Ben (and his parents) during his hospital stay.

Thanks very much for your generosity.
