A Beautiful Article in Kitsap Week

In case you didn't see it today, there is a beautiful article about Katie and Hannah Hunt (daughter of our friends Reba and Bill) in the Kitsap Week. It tells the story of their journeys, and the fundraising for research that they have both inspired, as well as details about the upcoming Hannah's Hopeful Hearts event on Friday, April 10th.

Many thanks to Richard Walker for his sensitive and insightful coverage of the subject. Here is a link to his article: An Inspired Effort.

Juno Therapeutics in the News (T-Cell Therapy)

Juno Therapeutics has been in the news lately; they "went public" on the NASDAQ exchange recently (you can look up the stock with the symbol JUNO). Juno was also featured in Seattle Business magazine last month, in a fascinating article about the business climate for biotechnology here in Seattle. The article explores how Juno fits into that picture, and is well worth the time it takes to read; you can access it easily by clicking the link HERE.

The day we have prayed for is drawing closer through this research - the day when we stop poisoning cancer patients with chemotherapy and radiation, and strengthen their bodies using their own immune system's T-cells. Katie would be thrilled - somehow, I believe that she IS thrilled.
