Tamer Seckin, MD:  This is really a thank you speech and it is going to be very short. As I wind my tape back to five years ago when we started this I never thought we would be here for three days in a row with such a wonderful crowd, patients, medical students in the back, seven of them who were picked by the Foundation. They have been sitting here for, is it seven or ten?  Thank you for staying this long we will remember that. I would like to thank all the full-time Foundation staff. Marilyn, Theresa, all of them, the ENPOWR Project runners that are going to schools we have. I could not believe that we would be doing high school children training.
