i want to link to some news articles of interest

The first one is about stem cell research and dilated cardiomyopathy. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4326698.stm Until now it has been considered a incurable condition, but these tiny little cells may hold hope for the future. I have called for a pack, which i should recieve soon, and maybe Peter will consider it as an option.

The second is all about Peter houghton, the man whose life was saved by a jarvik 2000 artificial heart pump. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4598751.stm Again something that may be of more help in the future?

Jim Braid, another recipitant of the jarvick http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/3514136.stm

And lastly, Jonathon Cropper whose donated heart started to fail, so was also given a pump. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/3197406.stm
