Letter from Vincent


letter from Vincent

Dear Vincent D’Amato, Jr.,

Thank you so much for your wonderful letter and wonderful ideas.  I wish I were smart enough to figure out how to make the special pill that you have thought of that will make esophagus cancer go into the stomach and be destroyed.  It may not be until you become a scientist that this happens since this pill will be hard to make.  However, in the interim, I will be the next D’Amato Research Fellow and I will work in Dr.  Anirban Maitra’s laboratory.  I am coming all the way from the Netherlands (Holland) to do this.  There is a picture of me here.  My name is Mirte Stippel.  I will work as hard as I can to learn as much as I can about how esophagus cancer kills wonderful people like your grandfather and I hope to be able to report advances as I do my laboratory work.  Thanks again for your ideas.

  1. Dear Vincent, Jr.

    We are sorry we were confused. You said Jerry D’Amato was your uncle but we made a mistake and referred to him as your grandfather! Thanks again for sending your ideas. We will work as hard as we can on esophagus cancer.

  2. Dear Vincent Jr.,

    Thank you for your wonderful ideas and the passion you and your family has shown in helping us eradicate this disease.
    I hope you can visit us someday in the laboratory and say hello!

  3. Thank you so much for the invitation. We would love to come and visit. Hopefully we can find a date that works for my parents and the doctors.

  4. Esophagus cancer took my great grandfather away from me 4 years ago, so I understand how you Vincent feels. I wish I was as smart as he is in the 5th grade though :)

    I hope that we do end up finding a cure soon, so that no one has to experience what myself or Vincent Jr. did.
