Dear Friends,

 January 1st was instituted by Caesar as the first day of the year, partly to honor the month's namesake: Janus,
the Roman god of beginnings, whose two faces allowed him to look back in to the past and forward into the future. Thus, as we begin this New Year, I would first like to take a look
back to share some of the things we have been involved with and thank you for your support. Then we will look forward and celebrate this New Year knowing that each year we are getting closer to a final cure for cancer.
Until Next Time... 

My Blue Dots 
we give because you gave
