In December will that would be the end of six. Rounds of that and then you can take before body scans and cat scan and Seagram but -- there. For people who ask where does the money go and it goes to so many different areas -- one of the most important things it goes into his research. -- toxin would not even have been an option for people well ten years ago certainly maybe not even five years ago. Yeah it's interesting they come discovered that drugs were or were created at thirteen years ago at Dana Farber. And dumb. I guess it does not have the far side effects. The traditional chemo has like -- here in sickness.

I felt very comfortable they -- and have received great great treatment and can't say enough about the doctors in the staff and volunteers that wonderful people there.
