My name is AJ Petter, author and travel writer but this story is about my fiancee Suzanne Quinn. Having just retired from over 30 years in the the computer industry and enjoying life traveling around Texas while writing a travel blog with me called Texas Thru My Backdoor, Suzanne  was stunned when she found out she had Breast Cancer. But instead of being depressed with the diagnoses, she embraced this new challenge just as she did when she managed projects at Hewlett-Packard. This fund has been started by us to donate to a High Tech Nanotechnology early detection cancer research project at MD Anderson Cancer Center called "VD NanoMRX Project". Suzanne loves this high tech futuristic approach to cancer detection that may one day eleminate mamograms and other cancer detection methods. It's just like Suzanne to worry about and take care of others before herself.  I hope you agree! Send as little or as much as you like. As a Thank You to those who donate $25 or more, I will send a copy of my book The Second Coming - The Republic of Texas autographed by Suzanne with her motto Mind/Matter>cancer. She is also chronicling her thoughts about dealing with Breast Cancer in a new blog called My Equations For Life. I hope you will enjoy her insight into the world of Breast Cancer treatment and survival.
Thanks For Your Support!

I wanted to let everyone know that Suzanne has successfully completed her chemotherapy and breast surgery! While it looks like all her cancer is gone, she will still have radiation treatments to make sure that the cancer is gone hopefully forever. Thanks for everyone's support and prayers.

Suzanne is doing as well as possible as she reaches week 6 in her Chemotherapy Treatments. She has been writing new stories for her blog "My Equations For Life". Check it out! Thanks to those who believe like us that a donation to help Cancer Research is important. Think about it. How much would you donate to research if you knew cancer was in your Future? About 40% of the people in the U. S. will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Donating as little as $5 can help fund this research that might one day help you!
