  1. Well done the MMRF and those who partake.

    Colin ( &Margaret of course)

  2. Why has the MMRS not looked at the work of Dr. Stephen Russell at The Mayo Clinic in MN? He has had success using the measles virus to cure multiple myeloma. He has discovered in over 200 studies how viruses can kill the cancer and over stimulate the immune system. Please look at his work.
