Researching meningiomas (like Feckit and Fuss)

I have just re-acquainted myself with the online forum Meningioma Mommas, and while I don't go much on the name (!) I do very much admire the group, the brainchild of Liz Holzemer , herself a survivor of a huge meningioma. 

Not only does the MM forum provide support and "chat space" for victims and their families it is also active in raising money towards Research into meningioma at the famous John Hopkins Hospital. So far the Mommas have raised $192,000 (USD) towards their goal of ONE MILLION

It is easy to make a donation via PayPal or post should you feel so inclined.

Now that I know of the second tumour I feel it too should have a name and have decided to call this one Fuss. Feckit and Fuss .... has a nice ring to it I feel!!
