    Thank you Dr. Beckerle and your whole team, and of course, to Jon M. Huntsman, for your tremendous work fighting and curing cancer.

    People really need to use the services provided at Huntsman (although I wish no one ever needed to...) in order to understand the magnitude and success of the operation. While that alone is a laudable accomplishment, the crowning achievement is the corporate attitude that extends to EVERY employee there. The universally cheerful, helpful, caring, concerned and professional approach is contagious (and that's a good thing!) and has spread to everyone working there. Not just the brilliant researchers, skilled clinical workers, but also among the support workers who keep it all functioning.

    Like the young folks who provide the valet parking, the volunteers who work the snack carts, the lab and clerical workers, the cooks and cashiers at the (exceptionally good!) cafeteria, the housekeeping and janitorial staffs, and the efficient pharmacy crew.

    Together, they really do work miracles. May God bless them each individually, and collectively for their much appreciated help to those afflicted with cancer.

    Thank you, Lee Benson and the Des News team. This is a story about faith and leadership that has and will continue to bless lives around the world as the fight against cancer wages on.

    I don't understand why we don't see more stories like this from the local media and I don't understand why this story isn't a part of the scrolling headlines at the top of the home page. What is it with sports that captures so much attention at a single but fleeting point in time when such great work is being done in our medical community that actually changes and enhances lives? If you want to understand why the Pac-10 Presidents and Chancellors selected the University of Utah to be numbered among them, look no further than this story and dozens of others just like it.

    A university is about far more than sports, or at least it should be. The work done at the University of Utah is aligns perfectly with goals and objectives of the greatest institutions in world. Why is the local media so inept at bringing these stories forward?

    Thank you, Dr. Mary Beckerle.
