Sichuan Death Toll

The number of known dead has climbed above 40,000. The estimated death toll from officials in Beijing has climbed above 72,000. Almost that many remain missing, and more than half of the 45 cities and towns hit by the earthquake have still not been reached by rescue and recovery workers, even eight days after the 7.9 earthquake (revised yesterday from 7.8 by USGS).

Prayers and help, whatever you can do for the people in Sichuan, would be appreciated and are desperately needed.

Food
Water
Tents
Tools
Medical supplies
construction equipment

are most needed.

I am glad to read this Blog- The very name cancer is scary to us. Since no cure for this, any one will fear. Even me too. This is a nice blog- But I am looking for more updates with more information. Cancer can make people invalid. I know that it can kill your health but never the will. Your heart will beat for the untold melody of life. I have found an info guide that deals with the Cure of Cancer through holistic treatment. It may be good if you really need a cure to save life. Yu can have that free guide from following URL http://www.helpcure.com/cancer
I request all to gather/ find more and better information about cancers and create blogs as well as blog posts to make us know further. You know many of us need better information. Even me too.
Have a nice day
