It's spread to her brain now apparently causing a lot more pain.

1 in 3 people contract cancer.  That is a huge number.

Speaking of matters medical, did anyone else read that Glasgow is the world leader in stem cell research and that Obama is going to lift all research restrictions imposed by Bush - this could ultimately cost Scotland £50 million as the scientists move west.

My younger brother is one of those scientists and has, only last week, moved to the US to continue his research.  He was previously at Glasgow.

Can't blame him for that.  The thing is that eventually everyone benefits (medical wise) which is much more important than £50 million (just said that very quickly !!).

I could weep for Jade..... can't even begin to imagine.... although I had an aunt who died from spreading cancer and I watched her go through it all.  She was only in her 50s.  It's weird when it's someone you know and love.... it's like kind of not real?  One day they are there talking to you, and the next thing you go to view a dead body.

I should have qualified that and said all - stem cell - research restrictions.

Absolutely.  What I can glean from my brother is that there are so many strains of cancer that it's very difficult to pinpoint and treat.  We all carry some cancerous cells, I believe, and they reckon stress in life is a huge contributory factor also.  That, and our diet.  It appears to be less prevalent in eastern countries where the diet is so different.

It would be about time that a ban on stem cell research was lifted. Biggest, most costly load of nonsense ever implemented.

"Oh, it has a soul"

**** off.

Shame that it'll cost us Scots, though. I'm not sure whether this is the case now, but around 10 years ago I read that Scotland was the most technologically advanced country in the world besides Japan. No doubt a result of our contributions to the world.

Scots get everywhere and make fabulous contributions (as do other Nations).  There is a long list of Scots who died fghting at the Alamo - amazing that there were so many Scots there at that time.

My wee bro' is a prime example of research scientists full of frustration.  He gets paid **** money in Glasgow for all his qualifications and has since been in the US and come back.... and gone back to the US again - 'cos that's where he knows he can make the biggest impact...... Shrug

Well, he'll no doubt make as big an impact in the US as he would have made in the UK, since everything of significance is shared and published, but he'll definitely get more money in the US.

He's had so many papers publshed I've lost count tbh.... and that's not a bragging thing..... if you met him, he's the most down to earth person ever.... but he does good work and I'm very proud of him.

That's what I meant - i.e. that works of significance get shared and published.  If I were in his position and could sell my skills to the highest bidder, I would do just that - got to think of the Pension Plan down the road.  Also, from the Researcher's point of view, not so much penny-pinching going on in the US, so that makes life even better.

It would be wonderful if he can make a 'difference' - nothing more satisfying.

I think that's his mission..... I hope it comes to fruition.  Smile
