Fandom and Charity events...

I'd like to congratulate everyone behind the "all things inspired by Gillian" team for their December 6th Charity drive to cure Neurofibromatosis, a disease that has been known to lead to cancer.

As well as I'd like to acknowledge X-Files News for their reporting of the event.

The outcome bodes well for the character of those Philes who could attend, and across the board, it illustrates just how generous and caring X-Philes tend to be. Frank's appearance was very generous, and his sentiment of "I am one of you." will be appreciated by many.

Chris Carter is known for establishing "The Chris Carter Foundation", providing scholarships for students in the Sciences, so, this event on Dec 6th makes sense in a way. Chris, Frank and many Philes seem to be like minded with their view of not approaching medical scientific research as an adversary. As of this writing, I have no idea if Chris's foundation is still running, but I hope Mr. Carter continues with that avenue. It is always great to see such an example set for the belief in medical research, as has been demonstrated with Mrs. Anderson, Mr. Carter, and Mr. Spotnitz.

I hope that all X-Philes will continue to follow their example.
