Hi, Becca, in Chicago at ASCO. What's going on?  

Now we have other things going on.  

And after being told that he didn't have long to live he lobbied for himself, advocated, did research with his wife, and ended up in a clinical trial for CAR?T therapy.  And he's just doing great.  He's written a blog and a book, and the interview was just delightful, so I hope that you all will take a listen because he's very inspirational.  

Go ahead about Jim Harland, Esther.  

And we have also coming up in the next couple of months a number of town meetings.  We just want to let you all know about that in Cincinnati. 

Andrew Schorr:

In Houston.

Esther Schorr:

In early September.
