The Kanzius Method?

Hi Folks!

How many of you read the Acromegaly News over in the sidebar?  I take a look at it from time to time, and I found one of the current articles up there to be particularly exciting - It talks about the the Kanzius Method of treating pediatric brain cancer, which may be one day applied to pituitary tumors!  Very interesting idea, and I hope there is funding and support for more research!  Here's the article in the news bar:

It seems the person who invented this method passed away recently (John Kanzius, R. I. P.) but his legacy is quite profund.  I read his obituary and discovered that he is quite a remarkable person- he seems quite brilliant and accomplished despite never earning a college degree.  I encourage you to take a look at his obituary for yourself!

Anyway, the message of this post is to remind people that there is progress in the treatment of acromegaly!
