The Starfish Story

Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Preferred Properties

A man went for a walk along the beach one morning after a storm. As far as the eye could see, the sand was littered with starfish that had washed up on the shore and were dying in the sun. In the distance, the man saw a young boy walking down the beach, picking up starfish after starfish, tossing them back into the surf one at a time. When he was close enough to be heard above the waves, the man asked, “Child, why are you doing this? There must be thousands of starfish out here…what possible difference can you make?” The boy reached down, picked up a starfish and threw it as far as he could back into the sea. “Sure made a lot of difference to that one.” And he reached down to pick up another one.

Hi Johnathan! I have been a "star thrower" for many years now. I am on a mission to help find the cure and prevention of cancer. I was diagnosed in 2007 and now I am cancer-free, without drugs or surgery. I have some vital information that can help many if they would only listen.  Can you help? Are you interested? Do you know someone who is fighting cancer?

If so, please e-mail me. I am not a nut-case; this is for real. Thanks. Christine, Burton, MI.
