Critical Research FACS Machine Needed!

Researchers at PHLBI.org have developed a potentially life-saving breakthrough in cancer therapy using gene-modified non-embryonic stem cells to boost patients' normal immune systems. This is being tested in a novel "minature human" immune system in plastic dishes and needs extensive use of a labeling system to clarify what happens to a variety of cells that are added to the "mix". This machine is expensive but invaluable and a must if this program is going to proceed at the pace that cancer patients need and deserve. Additionally, PHLBI has pledget to support our Veterans with research into areas of cancer such as  lung cancer and mesothelioma from which our Veterans excessively suffer. The US government gave Veterans cigarettes during our wars and exposed thousands of service men and women to asbestos. Our legacy as a country is to take care of these victims and PHLBI is dedicated to doing this. PLEASE HELP!!!! Go to https://www.gofundme.com/PHLBI-FACS-machine and donate NOW!!
