Guys - This is off topic, but it involves two of our brothers in the slot car hobby. If you haven't heard or read about it yet, one of our own Jersey Boys, Mario Pisano's(Chief) son Mike has been diagnosed with leukemia and is being treated at The Cancer Institute at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. Mike is 36 and I have known him and Mario for over twenty years now - among the first people I got to know in the collecting hobby - and some of the best, nicest and most liked people I have known in our hobby, and they have always treated me well. I have not been able to get in contact with Mario yet about any details, as I'm sure he's spending all his time there with Mike. Mario has sent a request for help, as Mike needs white blood cells. I am pasting his request in this email, so if anyone can help, please contact Mario at [email protected]., or get in touch directly with RWJ to donate at:

Blood Center
4th Floor, Clinical Academic Building
125 Paterson Street
New Brunswick, New Jersey 08901

Apologies

My apologies in advance to the members for posting about Mike Pisano in multiple categories. I simply wanted to get the word out to as big an audience as possible as soon as possible. My wife had a rare form of leukemia, APL, eight years ago and I know how important it is to get word out for help asap. Again, my apologies.

No appologies necessary! We are our brother's keeper! I'm the wrong type but I will spread the word around here. Thanks for posting.

JTSLOT - Thanks, if you can help, take a look at the above section of the post, and you will see the email for Mario. If you want to just go directly to the Blood Center and speak to them, call them at the number in my message or the one Mario gives, that has the extra extensions to get through. Thanks again. I will give your number to Mario. What's your name?
