Not a Dry Eye: Annette and Andrea at the WPI CMM Inauguration

Where it all began, how it gained momentum and where we are All headed, thanks to Annette, Harvey Whittemore, and Andrea Whittemore-Goad, Dr. Peterson, Dr. Mikovit's team, and the rest of those who worked so very hard to make the Whittemore Peterson Institutes's Center for Molecular Medicine a reality, and hope for all of us. Andrea, it was so delightful to see you up there!

When I was 95% bed and couch bound, and at my sickest during the years 2001-2006, the one thing I learned the hard way was that although I couldn't promise the next day would be better, I could without a doubt, promise myself it would be different. "Different" was something I could count on, and a promise I could hang onto realistically. Now I can say to myself:

Tomorrow will be a Better day.

The WPI has given me that. What an extraordinary, singular experience I never thought I would have. God Bless you all.
