Some excellent news: Our website has won 1st Prize - Cancer on the Internet Award. The website's success is owed to all of you in creating such a caring community. Congratulations all!
The application took me 941 minutes, 156 revisions, 5671 words .... my family thought I was 'overdoing it' but it appears to have been well worth the effort. Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the award ceremony and conference on the 10th July as the earliest the US embassy can fit me in for an interview for a visa is 17th July, with another 5 days for processing.
Unless the embassy takes a hand, Krishan (he doesn't need a visa) will attend on behalf of MCF; he deserves to receive the award on our behalf as he is the man who brought my vision into being.
