Mr. FOSSELLA. Madam Speaker, let me just in closing commend Mr. Baird for his advocacy. I can only imagine what it meant to him and his family in seeing the passing of his dad from this dreaded illness.

So in his honor and that of Mr. Castle, Mr. Norwood and especially practically 40,000 fellow Americans, it's so important to solve the problem, to acknowledge it exists, and become aware and educated on how to solve it.

Let's not just acknowledge and become more aware, but give the resources and funding and support those who ultimately want to find a cure.

Madam Speaker, with that, I yield back the balance of my time.
