My latest accomplishment
I have been asked, as a former Graduate Student of the Year for the University of Alabama, to make a commercial for them and to sit on their advisory board for online quality.

I just finished researching the possible causes of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, Primary CNS Melanoma and Gliomatosis Cerebri. These diseases are very rare brain cancers found in children and are fatal 99% of the time. They usually strike around the age of 5 to 7. There is no treatment protocol at this time.
