Over the Moon for the Moonshot Project

Here at Faith, Hope, and Lattes we are over the moon with the recent news surrounding the launch of "The Moon Shot Project" at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.  The name of the massive estimated 3 billion project aimed at finding the cures for 8 forms of cancer came about after organizers likened their no-holds barred campaign to the Kennedy era space exploration program fifty years ago that was determined to put a man on the moon within a decade.  One of the projects will simultaneously target a more aggresive and deadly form of ovarian and breast cancer (triple negative breast cancer). With genetic information and more precise drugs, "we have many of the tools we need to pick the fight of the 21st century" and find ways to defeat these cancers, Dr. Ronald DePinho said.   For this fight, I'm placing all my chips on MD Anderson!  Cancer doesn't stand a chance!
