Another Shipment Reachs the Hospital

The hospital has confirmed that the first shipment of 2007 reached the hospital this week. The (planned) contents of this shipment were the same as the previous shipment:

- Doxorubicin 50 mg vial : 48 vials planned, 45 actually shipped and received

The confirmation was a bit later than expected and I spent a worried day or two hoping that my contact at the hospital had not become a victim of the endless chaos that afflicts Iraq. Fortunately the cause of the delay turned out to be only the "routine" outages of electricity coupled with the high cost of fuel which has put the local generator off line.

Correction: Although 48 vials was the planned quantity, 45 vials were actually shipped and received. The text above has been corrected accordingly.

Hi Peter,

Glad to see you're up and around again and hopefully feeling better.

I just stopped in to see if you have ever contacted the Med Center One people about any help they might be able to give? They are helping with a pediatric burn clinic in Iraq. Even if they can't spare a little extra of their funding they may have connections to people who could help.

I believe Dr. Lambrecht is back in the States now.

I've had very poor luck approaching organizations for help. Advice from a former fundraiser for ACS suggests that organizations normally have have established agendas which can not be readily amended or modified. Appeals to individuals, on the other hand, tend to be more productive in her experience.

Exactly how to organize a systematic, effective appeal to individuals is a problem I have yet to solve, but it is something I think I need to study and pursue. Any suggestions are welcome.
