My Blue Dot's
mission statement:
           to honor .....
  to inform ...
  to give 

Stem Cells

Stem cells are the gift of life
For so many in great need.
The research is on the cutting edge
And great things they're discovering indeed.

For years they've tried many new things
But never could they restore -
Those damaged cells within our body
So we'll be healthy - as before.

But now we have the go ahead
To do stem cell research here,
Great promise it has for curing the ills
In those whom we hold dear.

So honor we do those who

do research
It's new - and cutting edge.
Each new day they do learn more
So to this group I do pledge.

To do all I can to support them
And the research that they do
For in the end it will save many lives
Perhaps mine - or even you.

Dear Friends,
Sue & Ornament

     As we step into a new year, My Blue Dots will continue to support our ongoing cancer programs but we are also stepping into a new field - stem cell research.

     My Blue Dots mission has always mixed the arts with healing, so we have commissioned glass artist, Dale Chihuly (www.chihuly.com) to create a magnificant hanging piece of art glass in the main entrance of the Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research building at Stanford University, Stanford, CA.

     We are excited about bringing this wonderful piece to this building at Stanford as a symbol of hope to those challenged by this disease and as a  symbol of encouragement to those working in this building to cure this disease.
                         Until Next Time....

       CANCER will be
                            CURED sometime
not NOW?

Looking to the New Year

      Art and science have always evolved together. The revolutions of the Renaissance were equally scientific and artistic, as developments in both fields changed humankind's view of the world and our place in it.

      The My Blue Dots - Chihuly Project aims to continue that symbiosis by funding a major installation by renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly in Stanford's new Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research Building to promote revolutionary advances in cancer treatment and raise awareness on the influence of art to science, and science to art.

Stem Cell Bldg.
      The Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research Building at Stanford University will be open by the fall of 2010.
