Michael Stratton, cancer gene scientist, knighted Empty How wonderful...

It is such a relief to know that there are some professional people out there that actually care for the ill in health. Maybe now I can point my friend who has all of the symptoms glaucoma; which they can't seem to recognise here, into finally getting a diagnoses and treatment. We can breathe a sigh of relief on breast as well, that is simply marvellous. Well deserved knighthoods, I hope they get ALL they deserve!  But they won't because 'good people never get rewarded; only the bad get praised in this life!' Evil or Very Mad

It's also nice to see this happening for doing something that has a bit more impact than how many pop records the new "knight" has sold jocolor
