I just found out that they named a peak in Antarctica after my father. http://aadc-maps.aad.gov.au/aadc/gaz/display_name.cfm?gaz_id=130699
It makes me so sad. He died of cancer about 10 years ago. He was only 54. My mother just sent me this note.
I went back to Dr. Wiley (the doctor who operated on me) last Wednesday to get a CA-125 (blood test for ovarian cancer) and a liver function test.  He called yesterday to give me the results.  He said my CA-125 was 6.9.  That is absolutely fantastic!!  Normal is anything below 30.3 andthe lower the better.  Before my surgery it was 736.7 and one month after my surgery, it was 40.7.  But now it is not just in the normal range, but very, very safely in the normal range!!  In fact, it's so good, my doctor told me I could wait 6 months to get it checked again.  Usually, they want to check it every 2 to 4 months.  Also he said all my liver enzymes are in the normal range.  When you have cancer, it means that your liver is no longer functioning normally and is no longer able to fight off the cancer cells.  It looks like I'm on the right track for defeating this cancer.  So now you don't have to worry about your mom anymore!!

This was after finding out she had one of the most destructive ovarian cancers. She decided not to undergo chemo and simply change her diet. This is after reading The China Study. I believe it to be the most important book on diet and nutrition written this century.
