Mommy is borrowing our blog for a moment. We hope you understand, but cancer is a very important subject to her, after losing Texas last month.
Momma K: So, I just found this link where apparently, the father of the CEO of some company called Rocketboom, who is also a philantropist, is dying from Multiple Myeloma.
There is only one possible cure, a drug called Tysabri, which is not officially approved for treatment of Multiple Myeloma. The Mayo Clinic and several people have urged the CEO of the company that makes Tysabri to just say Yes to allowing this person to get the treatment, yet the CEO is saying no for some reason. The son has a blog post that tells you how specifically to help urge this CEO to please please allow this man to get the treatment.
UPDATE:Now that I've been home from work, I've had time to research this more. I am noticing all sorts of holes in the story. Many people have pointed out on the other blogs that it seems unsual that the CEO's approval would be needed. Others have mentioned that the dying person was supposedly a lawyer who sued drug companies his whole life. I am leaving this post up because I don't know for sure that this story ISN'T true. I do want to apologize to my readers for not verifying my facts on this before passing this along. I get quite irritated at people that pass on stupid chain emails warning of ridiculous dangers without researching the facts. I fear I may have done something similar today, but I simply did not want another person or animal, whether it turns out this guy is some crooked lawyer or a philantropist or something in between, to die of cancer. If this all turns out to have been some strange hoax, please accept my sincerest apologies.
