Thank you to the Zaffaroni on their investment in Breast Cancer health and the Breast Imaging Center at Stanford.

I cut Mr. Zaffaroni's hair for a few years around the 1990's. He was a very down to earth man that made me feel comfortable. We had many interesting conversations.

Farewell Alex, it was a pleasure knowing you!
