First, kudos to Liz for sharing! I coordinated the "Breast Cancer: Fear is the Enemy" conference and may have the booklet in the numberous banker's boxes packed for my move to Capitola. Will look for it.

Jay, thanks for this column. Sandy Rensvold deserves the credit for writing the booklet. I know we will find one.
