Support Scientific Research in the Fight Against Leukemia

Back in December I told you about Operation SkyPhoto an effort to raise money for young Alexander Thatte, a young leukemia patient who also happened to the son of two physicists from the University of Oxford (that's where Palomar's SWIFT spectrograph comes from). After a long struggle Alexander lost his battle with the disease early this year.

The Alexander Thatte Fund has been created in his memory to support research into causes of infant leukemia and to seek a cure for this devastating disease. It is a very worthy cause. So if you have the money to give, just do it. All donations, even those made from here in the U.S., are tax deductible
