    I salute you in your endeavor! I like the Heritage Health Prize which, as mentioned, is greater than the Nobel prize in medicine. I know that there is a bit of controversy involved regarding the intellectual property rights, but that doesn't scare me. I hope you find the cure needed to keep patients away from the hospitals.
