  7. Great news Alan – I was watching you on SPOT before I went to bed last night and was so excited for you this morning. I’m sitting in my office at work (Pfizer), where we’re helping to search for the drugs that will help make this disease manageable, and eventually curable. When it’s tough here or frustrating, you inspire me to keep going and never give up. Thanks again for everything you’re doing to raise awareness and money for this cause. Have a safe climb down and safe trip home!
