Answer for request for info (CLL)

From:Shirley Bradley

My thanks to everyone who took the time to reply to my inquiry

Here are the figures I did receive:

Emphysema   ----5
Leukemia    ----5
Lymphoma    ----5
Stomach CA  ----4
Brain CA    ----1
Breast CA   ----2                                                      
Lung CA     ----2
Pitutary CA ----1
Unknown CA  ----5
TB          ----2
A Regestry For Histotechnologists and Pathologists would be nice to have

	My sincere thanks to you all. Histonet is such a great service.
