Hi.  Thanks for coming here in Briggs's memory.  The petition is now most active on Care2 if you wouldn't mind signing there instead: Put Briggs's Beautiful, Smiling Face on the Cover of TIME Magazine to Begin a New Era in Cancer

It's the same exact petition but your signature will count more there.

Many thanks.  Sorry for the extra step...



In my wife Briggs's memory, the Petition for Briggs for Cancer Immunotherapy for All has been signed by 25 stars of film, media, and tennis.  Six professors of oncology have also added their names to the call.  Arianna Huffington recently invited me to write about Briggs, the petition, and immunotherapy in an article that was featured on the Huffington Post: 30 Stars and Doctors Sign Petition for Immunotherapy.

Briggs wanted to stop all the harm that was done to her, and the suffering, death, and loss that can be brought to an end with immunotherapy.  Please join me in asking the managing editor of TIME Magazine to put Briggs's lovely face, and all she represents in the fight against cancer, on the cover of TIME. 

In 1931, the strongest proponent of radiation in the U.S. was on the cover of TIME.  By 1949, a doctor who would be one of the foremost proponents of chemotherapy was on the cover.  Over 60 years later, let's get Briggs and immunotherapy there, to begin changing the face of cancer for all other patients and caregivers; for everyone about to get that sudden or long-feared diagnosis. 

Briggs's grin was the essence of her.  She brightened people's days wherever we went.  Please join me in doing this wonderful thing, to have her beautiful face smiling out at us from newsstands, in doctors' offices, everywhere.  It can be the symbolic and tangible beginning to bringing this new era in cancer into being for everyone.

My heartfelt thanks for adding your name to this call...

All very best,
